Student Health Services at Moffitt Health Center

Services We Offer

 

Our staff treats a wide range of health problems including acute minor illnesses and injuries. We have a CLIA certified laboratory and x-ray capability within the health center.

Our providers are able to see patients for ADHD medication needs/refills after ADHD testing has been completed indicating an ADHD diagnosis. Past testing records are accepted. Patients are required to sign a Controlled Substance Good Faith Agreement and return monthly for refills. 

The Office of Health Promotion at Moffitt Health Center currently houses an alcohol and drug related program:

The Eagle Check-Up program consists of 2-3 meetings in which students can confidentially discuss their alcohol and/or marijuana use with a trained health educator.

Allergy sufferers can receive their allergy injections at Student Health Services. The patient will have to provide their medication with orders from their prescribing physician. Allergy medication will be stored/refrigerated at the Student Health Services.

The Office of Health Promotion is available to provide information on various health topics and promote healthy behaviors to college students. Health educators are available to develop programs and give lectures to classes, residence halls, and student organizations about the health concerns of college students.

Two doses of measles-containing vaccine(usually administered as MMR vaccine) are required for all first-time enrollers to all Mississippi colleges and universities and must be obtained before the new student will be permitted to receive a class schedule and attend classes.

An Immunization Form must be completed by your health care provider and sent back (in a timely manner) to the admissions/registration office. Doing this in advance will simplify the registration process for both students and college officials.

Re-Immunization is necessary when:

  1. Measles vaccine was administered before 12 months of age and/or before January 1, 1968.
  2. Rubella vaccine was administered before 12 months of age and/or before 1969

Rubella and Measles are not required for females who may be pregnant. If pregnancy is suspected, a valid certificate of Medical Exemption from Immunization Requirements for adults is required until pregnancy is resolved.

Measles vaccine is not required for persons born before 01-01-1957.

In addition to the required immunizations listed above, the following shots are recommended, but not required:

  • COVID
  • Hepatitis B (a series of three shots)
  • Influenza (flu)
  • BOTH Meningococcal ACWY and Meningococcal B vaccines, especially for freshmen living on campus. 
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria (Td) – A booster of Td within the last 10 years

For further information on immunization requirements or recommendations, refer to the CDC Immunization Schedules, MSDH Immunization Schedule for Adults, or the MSDH Immunization Schedule for Children

Travel Abroad Immunizations

A list of specific immunizations and vaccines needed for traveling out of the country is available by visiting the CDC Traveler's Health website. These vaccines can be obtained at Student Health Services.
