The Campus Health Center (CHC) can administer COVID-19 vaccines, boosters, and testing to enrolled WSU students, faculty, and staff. You are eligible to receive an updated booster if it has been at least two months since you completed your primary COVID-19 vaccine series. See current CDC Recommendations.
Does Wayne State University require the COVID-19 vaccine?
Vaccines are no longer required for faculty, staff and students, except for those living in university housing and students and faculty involved in clinical programs. For more information see Wayne State’s current vaccine requirements.
What type of COVID-19 vaccine does CHC offer?
CHC offers Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. If receiving a vaccine or booster be prepared to stay 15 minutes after the vaccine is administered.
What should I bring to my COVID-19 vaccine/booster appointment?
Bring your WSU OneCard, your driver’s license or government-issued ID, and your insurance card. If you are completing your primary series, or getting a booster, bring your COVID-19 vaccination card.
What should I do if I have COVOD-19 symptoms or had an exposure?
As a reminder, part of keeping our campus healthy is to follow the CDC guidelines if you have symptoms of COVID or if you have a known exposure to someone with COVID. For your convenience, these guidelines are also summarized below and on the WSU COVID website.
If you have symptoms:
- Begin isolation from others. You should also isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results.
- Get tested immediately.
- If you test negative, you may end your isolation.
- If you test positive, stay home for at least five days and isolate from others in your home.
- If your symptoms are improving, you may end isolation after day five if you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication).
- If your symptoms are not improving, continue to isolate until:
- You are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication).
- Your symptoms are improving.
- Always follow the advice of your health care provider.
If you have a known exposure (defined as more than 15 minutes of contact in a 24-hour period within six feet of a person confirmed to have COVID):
- Begin to wear a mask immediately and for 10 full days after your last exposure.
- Monitor yourself for symptoms.
- Get tested at least five full days after your last exposure. If you test positive, begin isolation. If you test negative, continue to wear a mask until day 10.
How much will the COVID-19 vaccine and/or testing cost?
We bill insurance for COVID-19 testing, vaccines and boosters. If you do not have insurance contact us about a self-pay option.
How do I get my COVID-19 test results?
CHC will call you if your test results are positive. Your results will be available through your patient portal.
