Important COVID-19 Information

Testing and Reporting

All students, staff and faculty are eligible for COVID-19 testing after exposures or suspicious symptoms. COVID testing for community members may be recommended as part of a visit with a nurse practitioner.

SXU Students and Employees Only: SXU is no longer tracking positive COVID-19 cases on campus and therefore the COVID Reporting Form has been inactivated. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home and use the CDC's Isolation and Exposure Calculator to determine when you can return to campus and stop masking. If you have been exposed or have suspicious symptoms for COVID-19, please call 773-298-3712 to request or test or a sick visit with a nurse practitioner. If you have any COVID-related questions please call the Health Center, email healthcenterFREESXU, or send a secure message through our Patient Portal. Questions will be answered during business hours.

Learn more about COVID-19 Testing and Vaccines.

COVID-19 Vaccines

We now have the updated (2023-2024 formulation) COVID-19 vaccines in stock at the Health Center! The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older receive at least one dose of this vaccine this fall whether or not they've been previously vaccinated (those 6 months to 4 years old may need two doses if they have never been vaccinated). The updated vaccine is a better match to fight common variants circulating now. We are also happy to add the COVID-19 vaccine to your flu vaccine appointment. Please call 773-298-3712 to make an appointment. 

We currently have a supply of Moderna for 6 months of age and older and Pfizer for 12 years of age and older.

The COVID-19 vaccines are no longer supplied from the government and will be billed through private insurance. We are in-network with many insurances. Learn more about COVID vaccines and how to get a vaccine for free if you don't have insurance at COVID-19 Testing and Vaccines.

Masking in the Health Center

Masking is currently optional in the Health Center, however, we will ask you to wear a mask if you are experiencing any upper respiratory symptoms (e.g. sore throat, stuffy nose, cough, fever, etc). Our clinical staff continues to wear masks during sick visits. If you would prefer the staff to wear a mask for your visit, please ask and they would be happy to do so.

Telemedicine

We continue to offer telemedicine visits (via secure video link) for certain conditions. Please call 773-298-3712 for more information.
