  • Skidmore’s UnitedHealthcare insurance: Charge will be billed to the insurance with no charge to the student.
  • All other insurance: Students will pay the fee listed below (by tuition account, Skid Card, or cash) and then can submit to their insurance or medical spending account for reimbursement. 
Immunizations offered at Health Services:
  • Meningitis (Menveo ACWY) - $110
  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) - $70
  • Tetanus (Tdap) - $40

HPV, Hep A and Hep B vaccines are not carried at Health Services.

Some common vaccinations can be administered at local pharmacies such as CVS or Walgreens using your health insurance.  We encourage you to call the location(s) to discuss as online scheduling may not list all available options.  COVID vaccine information is available here.
