Immunization Hours

Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc.

Health Alert: Norovirus

VCU has NOT experienced an unusual increase in students with stomach illnesses. However, several Virginia universities have reported cases of Norovirus. This virus causes vomiting and diarrhea and is very contagious. Keep yourself healthy by:  

  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water, especially before eating or preparing food. Using a hand sanitizer alone will not protect you from Norovirus.
  • Washing fruits and vegetables well.

If you have symptoms of Norovirus:

  • Drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.  Read our Stomach Flu (Gastroenteritis) handout for more info.
  • Call Student Health if you cannot keep down liquids.
  • Stay home for a minimum of 24 hours after symptoms resolve to avoid spreading your infection to others. If you are a food handler or work in childcare, you should not return to work until 48 hours after symptoms resolve.
Free Flu Vaccine Available to All VCU Students

Student Health encourages all students to receive the flu vaccine, especially students at high risk for flu complications, such as those with asthma, diabetes, and other chronic health problems.

Students may receive the flu shot or FluMist during immunization hours or immediately following a scheduled medical appointment.

Take-Care-Of-Yourself Checklist

It's a good idea to have a few self-care items in your dorm room for minor illnesses. Consider keeping a small supply of the following items (which are available at low prices through the Student Health Pharmacy):

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandaids
  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers, like ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Benadryl for allergic reactions
  • Cough and cold medications

The Well

The Wellness Resource Center empowers all students to move toward optimal health by finding a balance for all aspects of wellness.

Our one-on-one consultations and presentations extend to topics such as alcohol and other drugs, smoking cessation, nutrition, disordered eating/body image, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, stress management, and sexual health.

We also offer an array of volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved around campus.

Students with Disabilities

VCU students who have a documented disability and require special accommodations can contact Disability Support Services. Health Science students should contact the Division for Academic Success for assistance.‌
