Immunizations for students with Cardinal Care

Immunizations for students with private insurance

Students without Cardinal Care will be charged by Vaden Health Center for all immunizations, other than seasonal influenza.  Students may seek reimbursement from their private insurance company, but there is no guarantee of payment.  Alternatively, students may go to a provider who is in the private insurance network for the maximum benefit level.  See applicable charges below.
