Vaccination is a safe, effective, and convenient way to protect you and your loved ones from dangerous diseases. Our Prime and Elite plans provide benefits for preventative vaccines under the preventative care services guideline.
Vaccines Required by Your School
American universities usually require international students to complete an immunization form before they are allowed to attend classes. You need to submit documentation of adequate vaccination to your school by the deadline.
Here are a few kinds of commonly required vaccines:
Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)

How to get Vaccinated:
Find a place that works for you.
Student Health Center
A Student Health Center is a convenient way to get a vaccine at school. However, you sometimes need to file a claim after getting the vaccine.
Pharmacy Clinics (CVS MinuteClinic, Walgreens)
Pharmacy clinics usually offer recommended vaccines for adults.
Local Clinics/Doctor’s offices
You can easily locate a clinic or doctor’s office in our insurance network using preferred provider lookup. Simply enter your zip code, choose services and treatments > vaccines > adult vaccines.
Schedule an appointment online or via phone.
Make sure they have the vaccine you need.
Although many medical services, such as pharmacies and student health centers, accept walk-in patients, they sometimes do not carry the vaccine you need. Call to make sure the vaccine is available before you walk in.
Tell them about your medical condition.
Vaccines are safe with limited risks and controllable side effects. However, you may have high risks under certain conditions. Let them know about your medical conditions and immunization record.
Tell the doctor if you:
- Are sick
- Are pregnant
- Have any allergies
- Have had serious side effects from a vaccine in the past
During the appointment
- Show your doctor the insurance ID
Remember to bring your insurance ID and show it to your doctor.
Ask the doctor about risks, side effects, doses, and immunization schedules.
Please notice: HPV vaccine is covered by Elite or Prime plan for student who is under 27 years old.
