Health Services Medication Information
- Provided Medications
When you meet with a Health Services provider, we are able to provide prescription medications from our in-house formulary during your visit at no additional charge. These include many medications to treat common and chronic health conditions as well as the Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP; see below).
Health Services is not a dispensing pharmacy, which means we are not able to fill prescriptions from other providers. Information on local pharmacies is available below.
- Emergency Contraception (ECP)
The Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP) is available from Health Services. It is also available without a prescription through most pharmacies. If you wish to discuss contraception options, you can make an appointment with Health Services (via My Health) or with the Center for Sexual Health and Wellness of Livingston County at 585-243-7540 or 800-243-9240.
- Self-Care Center
Our Self-Care Center is designed to help you treat basic health care issues on your own. The center offers packets for colds, minor wound care, and basic pain relief. Each packet provides you with useful health information, including medicine and/or other treatments to help address your symptoms. Our center also provides condoms of various types plus information on STI prevention.
Our Self-Care Center is located on the first floor of the Lauderdale Health Center, just to the right of the front doors (near the stairs). All items from the Self-Care Center are available at no additional charge as covered by your Student Health Fee.
In addition to required vaccinations, Health Services strongly encourages students to receive immunizations for seasonal influenza, bacterial meningitis, and hepatitis B. When combined with practicing basic health behaviors such as getting sufficient sleep, eating well, not drinking large amounts of alcohol, and avoiding sharing eating/drinking utensils, immunizations can significantly reduce students’ risk of contracting these serious and potentially fatal diseases. Students who have not received these immunizations from their primary care doctors at home can get these vaccinations at Health Services.
Vaccination for meningitis must be pre-ordered and pre-paid. Other vaccinations are available via Health Services (may require an additional fee).
PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a medication program designed to prevent HIV infection. This is a service provided by Trillium Health. View their website or read more on the SUNY Geneseo LGBTQ pages.
