If you are unable to receive the meningitis vaccine through your primary care provider at home, you may receive the vaccine through the SHC. The vaccine cost $110. You will be given a receipt to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. In order to receive the vaccine in the health center please submit a check (made payable to Saint Joseph's University) with the student’s name, SJU ID and cell phone number.
