Flu Clinic Coming in October:

UHC, in partnership with VDH, will be hosting a flu clinic for students/staff at UREC
      Tuesday, October 10, 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
      Wednesday, October 11, 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Preregistration is now available to reserve a DOSE of flu vaccine. Registration will be available through October 4th 
All insurances will be accepted.

The University Health Center laboratory performs common labs on-site as well as collecting samples for analysis by our reference lab. The UHC lab will process orders from both on-campus medical providers and medical providers not affiliated with JMU.

On-Site Labs performed include:

  • COVID-19 - rapid antigen and rapid PCR
  • Flu (Influenza) - antigen and PCR tests are available
  • Glucose (blood sugar)
  • Mononucleosis
  • Strep Test - antigen and PCR tests are available
  • Urinalysis (dip stick test only)
  • Urine Pregnancy Test

Reference Lab
The JMU Health Center has a contract with a reference lab through which we can obtain essentially any lab a student may need performed. Many labs are inexpensive (ranging $5-$25) but others can be more costly. Students can either pay out-of-pocket or may arrange to have the reference lab bill their services through insurance. If a student plans to have the reference lab bill insurance, they will need to bring their insurance card to the appointment so a copy can be sent with the lab specimens.

Labs not requiring a physician's order
There are several labs that a patient may request without a lab order from a medical provider. These labs include:

  • Blood type (ABO/Rh)
  • Chickenpox (Varicella) titer
  • Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C surface antibody titer
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) titer
  • Sickle Cell screen
  • COVID-19 Antibody test

Appointments can be made on-line through MyJMUChart or by calling 568-6178.

Lab orders from a medical provider/physician not affiliated with JMU

  • Outside lab orders must be dropped off at the JMU Health Center, uploaded to MyJMUChart or faxed to Health Information (540-568-6176) for approval prior to scheduling an appointment.
  • Once the requested tests have been approved, students will be notified via a secure email message through MyJMUChart to schedule an appointment with the lab.
  • If the requested tests cannot be processed by our lab or if using an outside lab may be a better financial choice, the student will be called by Health Center staff to discuss options.
