    What are the immunizations required to attend Hamline?
    Minnesota Law (M.S. 135A.14) requires that all students born after 1956 and enrolled in a public or private post-secondary school in Minnesota be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps and rubella, allowing for certain specified exemption.

    I have an immunization hold on my account.  What does that mean?
    Students have an immunization hold if they have not provided information about required immunizations.  Students must submit this information via Piperline.  Without providing the necessary information, students will be unable to register.

    Can I get immunizations at Health Services?
    Health Services can provide immunizations for Tetanus/Diphtheria and influenza.  They can also provide Mantoux skin tests.

    Can I get a prescription at Health Services?
    Yes.  Health Services providers can prescribe medication as needed for a variety of common concerns, including strep throat, urinary tract infections, and pink eye.  

    Can I receive over-the-counter medications (e.g., Advil, Sudafed) at Health Services?
    The medical staff at Health Services are also able to distribute over-the counter medications to Hamline students.  However, students will need to schedule an appointment and have completed up-to-date paperwork in order to receive medications.  Administrative staff members are not able to distribute medications of any kind.

    Do I need HU insurance to come to Health Services?
    No.  Health services are provided to Hamline students regardless of their insurance coverage.  

    Is Health Services confidential?
    Any medical information that you share with our staff is considered private.  Information in your health file will not made available to anyone (including faculty, administrators and parents) without your written consent.  Please refer to Health Service's Notice of Privacy Practices  for more detailed information.

    I have plans to travel abroad.  How can Health Services assist me?
    Please refer to our handouts on Travel Resources.  Health Services is not able to provide medical clearance or a physical exam to students traveling abroad.  However, C&HS contracts with HealthPartners to provide on-campus travel medicine appointments.  Please contact our office for more details.

    What information can you offer on prescription assistance?
    Two websites containing databases on prescription assistance programs are RxAssist and Partnership for Prescription Assistance.  Both provide information about free and low cost medicine programs and other ways to manage your medication costs.  You are able to search for information by the name of the medicine or the company that manufactures it.  You may want to check with your doctor or pharmacist.  They may know where to get free or discounted medication.  You may also qualify for Medicaid or other similar health care programs that offer prescription coverage.  To learn more, visit the Minnesota Department of Human Services online.

    Target and Wal-Mart offer a discount program on certain generic drugs where customers can obtain a 30-day supply for $4.  Because of state regulations, certain drugs are priced higher in Minnesota.  Please click on the store name to access the complete list of medications in the prescription program.

    If you or a family member is in the service or is a veteran, you can visit TriCare to learn more about prescription coverage under the military health plan.
