Higi Station

Our thanks to Hallie Vanderhider, this year’s Houston Chair of the American Heart Association Go Red For Women Campaign, for generously providing our campus with a brand new higi™ station.

All UH students, staff, and faculty now have free and convenient access to this machine which tracks blood pressure, pulse, weight, and BMI. The University of Houston is the first college campus to have one!

The higi™ station is located near the UH Student Health Center and Campus Pharmacy at the Wheeler Street entrance of the Health 2 Building. Come check it out and see just how easy it is to measure numbers that are important to your health.

HPV Vaccine Recommendations

The Student Health Center recognizes the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently expanded its approval for the Gardasil 9 HPV Vaccine up for males and females up to 45 years of age.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices (ACIP) should be reviewing the expanded age range and determine if the changes will be included in the 2019 immunization schedule.

The Student Health Center follows the ACIP approved immunization schedule which DOES NOT include the expanded age range at this time. The Student Health Insurance Plan and most other insurance companies will not currently accept claims for this vaccine administered to the expanded age range.
