Immunization and Vaccination


  • You do NOT have to be an established patient to receive immunizations at the GVSU Family Health Center.
  • Students, faculty/staff, and the community are welcome to schedule an appointment.
  • Travel immunizations are offered; when scheduling please note the date and destination of travel
  • Patients pay out of pocket at the time of service for travel vaccines; the GVSU Family Health Center will then bill insurance.
  • Insurance companies are billed directly for "standard" vaccines.

Payment from insurance is not guaranteed. Please contact your insurance company for questions regarding plans, coverage, and deductibles.
