Announcements

While tobacco use and vaping is not allowed on ASU Campuses, we know that some people have continued to use those products off campus.  The CDC is investigating more than 6 deaths and more than 200 possible cases of severe pulmonary disease that may be related to the use of electronic cigarettes and has issued the following recommendations for the Public on 8/30/19:

  • Consider not using e-cigarette products.
  • If you do use e-cigarette products and you experience symptoms like those reported in this outbreak, seek medical care promptly.
  • Youth and young adults should not use e-cigarette products.
  • If you do use e-cigarette products, you should not buy these products off the street (for example, e-cigarette products with THC or other cannabinoids).

If you are concerned about your health after using an e-cigarette product, you can seek medical care at ASU Health Services or call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

Travel Vaccination - Yellow Fever

Since summer 2017, there has been a nationwide shortage of Yellow Fever vaccines. Prior to this shortage, ASU Health Services had been able to provide this vaccination to those traveling to at-risk countries in South America and Africa or to those countries requiring proof of this vaccination. Unfortunately, due to this ongoing shortage ASU Health Services is currently not able to provide this vaccine, but there are locations designated by CDC to provide a European equivalent yellow fever vaccination, Stamaril: 

Passport Health North Tempe, 417 S Clark Dr Ste. 100, Tempe (480) 482-6847 (there are additional locations in Scottsdale and Tucson).

Passport Health Tempe CANNOT provide medical clearance for study abroad students (meaning they cannot sign medical evaluation forms), but they can supply the Yellow Fever vaccination.No insurance accepted- please inquire with clinic regarding cost of visit and vaccination.

Generally most insurances do not cover travel-related visits. At the above clinics you should expect to be charged the full amount for the visit/vaccination costs, which you can later submit to your insurance for review in case they do provide coverage. However, it is always best to check with your insurance provider on the coverage details so that there are no unexpected denials.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, ASU Health Services regrets not being able to provide the Yellow Fever vaccine at this time. We are still available to provide the other travel-related services and medical clearance aside from the yellow fever vaccination. If you have further questions on this, please contact ASU Health Services at 480-965-3346 to speak with one of our travel nurses.
