Back to school season means the flu season is upon us. During the month of October, on Wednesdays and Thursdays, students may walk into the Health Center for a free flu shot.

Many students will get sick during the fall semester and the Health Center wants to help eliminate any stress that may come from lack of resources at home.
For small additional fee, student may also receive additional specialty vaccinations such as the Hepatitis A and B, and Tdap (Tetanus) shot. Check the Health Center website at https://health.fullcoll.edu/clinical-services for a list of all clinical services that the Health Center provides. Certain services do require set appointments.
The well being of college students is very important. Mental health is a huge part of the success of a student and many times goes unnoticed. At the Health Center there are full time staff on duty dedicated to behavioral health and mental counseling. Any student struggling with stress, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, body image, identity issues and family or romantic relationships struggles can seek help at no cost by setting up an appointment.
Students can make appointments for a private 50 minute session with a professional mental health counselor. With an appointment, students have a safe and confidential space to talk about their difficulties and work with their counselor to find steps to make healthy changes or adjustments in their lifestyle. The staff may also provide referrals to external support groups or specialists if they feel additional support is needed.
