COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing COVID-19 infection and reducing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The vaccines are the greatest tools available to mitigate COVID-19 and its negative health outcomes, including death. The vaccine is currently widely available and appointments are also available through the ASU Health Center.

Meningococcal Meningitis ACWY (one dose after age 16) and B (2 doses before age 24)
Meningitis is a potentially fatal or devastating illness and the risk is higher for college students living in residence halls than for 18–23 year old persons not in college.

Human Papilloma Virus (3 dose series)
The human papilloma virus (HPV) can cause cervical cancer in females, anal cancer in females and males, throat cancer in females and males and penile cancer in males.

Influenza (Yearly)
Influenza or flu is a contagious respiratory illness. It can cause mild to severe illness, and can also result in serious outcomes such as hospitalization or death. The vaccine is available at ASU Health Services starting in September/October of each year.

Pertussis or whooping cough (Tetanus Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap, Adacel or Boostrix) Update every 10 years)
