Columbia Health provides vaccination services for most current Columbia Morningside and Manhattanville students, most Teachers College students, and some students from Jewish Theological Seminary, and Union Theological Seminary.
Who can get vaccinations? How much do they cost?
Most routine vaccines are available at no additional cost for students who have paid the Full-Time Columbia Health and Related Services Fee (CHRSF). For students who have not paid the Full-Time CHRSF, vaccines are still available for a fee. Visit the Service Fees page for pricing.
Travel vaccines are available at reduced cost to all students. Visit the Service Fees page for pricing. Please note that because these vaccines are optional, they are not covered by the CHRSF or health insurance unless otherwise indicated.
