Weigel Health Center
The Weigel Health Center provides health and wellness services for all registered students. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness and injury, the professional staff stresses health education and preventive medicine. Students are seen on an appointment basis or a walk-in basis if a clinician is available. There is no charge for most services. Laboratory services are available at Weigel Health Center. Some services may be sent to an outside lab and may result in insurance co-pays.
The Health Promotions program provides the campus community with workshops, training, events, and health promotion campaigns. Topics include bystander intervention, wellness, stress, sexual health, tobacco prevention, and alcohol and other drug abuse prevention. Internship and volunteer opportunities are available to students, and educational resources are available for student research or classroom projects.
All students must be in compliance with New York State law regarding immunizations to be able to register for classes. All students born on or after January 1, 1957, are required to submit proof of current requirements for immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella. The health center provides measles, mumps, and rubella immunizations at no charge for students who need vaccinations. New York State Public Law and Buffalo State College also require all students enrolled to complete and return the Meningitis Information Response Form. The meningitis form and the New Student Health Form are available online and are to be returned to the health center. As of fall 2021, all students are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID. If vaccines are provided in NYS, Weigel should be able to retrieve them on the state’s immunization systems. Call (716) 878-6711 to verify that Weigel can obtain your vaccine records.
