Vaccinations

HEPATITIS A, B, and TWINRIX Vaccines

Hepatitis A, B, and Twinrix (both A and B) vaccines are offered beginning Fall Semester.  Hep A is a series of two vaccines; the second given six months after the first.  Hep B is a series of three; the second vaccine given one month after the first and the third vaccine given six months from the first.  Twinrix is given on the same schedule as Hep B and you get an extra dose of A.  All vaccines are billed to the State Health Plan and Medicare for 100% coverage.  Go to Health Promotion's Calendar for the scheduled vaccinations.  You must bring your insurance card and ASU ID.

T-DaP (Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis) and Tetanus Vaccines

TDaP was licensed in 2005. It is the first vaccine for adolescents and adults that protects against all three diseases. A single dose of TDaP is recommended for adults 19–64 years of age to replace the next booster dose of tetanus and diphtheria toxoids vaccine. (After this one time booster, you will return to the Td booster.) TDaP is also recommended for adults who have close contact with infants less than 12 months of age.  Fee for the TDaP will be billed to the State Health Plan and Medicare for 100% coverage.
Td (Tetanus and Diphtheria) vaccine is recommended every 8 to 10 years and if free.  If you cannot remember when you had your last vaccine, you are probably due one.  You must bring your insurance card and ASU ID.
