Seasonal flu clinics
The health center is offering vaccinations this fall to Western Michigan University employees, students and retirees who want to protect themselves and the people around them from seasonal influenza. Flu shots will be administered to these groups and their eligible dependents on a walk-in basis starting Monday, Sept. 9, during these times:
- Mondays, 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 5:30 p.m.
- Tuesdays, 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m.
- Wednesdays, 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m.
- Thursdays, 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m.
- Fridays, 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m.
WMU News published an article with details about eligibility for WMU employees and retirees.
This service is especially for injuries or acute illnesses that cannot wait for an appointment. If you come to the Sindecuse Health Center without an appointment, you will be referred to the triage nurse who will help you determine whether same-day care, a regular appointment or self-care guidance will be best for you.
Note: Walk-in service patients will be seen based on the priority of their presenting health problem—not on a first-come, first-serve basis—as determined by the professional clinic staff. Walk-in care is available until 30 minutes before closing. Your visit may take longer than a scheduled appointment.
You may also use the clinic for cost-effective immunizations including hepatitis B, HPV, tetanus, meningitis vaccine, flu vaccine when in season; allergy injections; blood pressure checks; pregnancy testing; and tuberculosis tests. Injections such as Depo-Provera and vitamin B12 are available. Patients must have a prescription from Sindecuse or an outside provider.
Nursing walk-in services are available from opening until 11:30 a.m., and from 1 p.m. until 30 minutes before closing.
Gender-specific health care
Clinician appointments are available for a broad range of health conditions including skin care, allergy injections, surgical biopsies for lesions, acne treatment with isotretinoin (Accutane), mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks and osteopathic manipulation.
Preventive health services
Annual health appointments with a preventive focus include a comprehensive medical review, physical exam, and discussion with a clinician about screening tests and immunizations appropriate for your age and health condition. Results will be sent to your community primary care provider as requested.
