Novel Coronavirus Update

COVID-19 Update 5.29.20

The Health Center will be open Monday – Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to see students that are still on campus.  Our last appointment will be scheduled at 4 p.m. If you need to be seen, please call 706-236-2267 to schedule an appointment.  Online scheduling via your patient portal has been disabled in an effort to reduce exposing well students to individuals that may be contagious. 

If you are a student living off campus and you get routine medication refills at the Health Center or you need to discuss a health issue, please call 706-236-2267 or email ecordle@berry.edu or mmerrin@berry.edu to discuss your options.

Health Center

The Health Center promotes optimal wellness in students by modifying or removing health-related barriers to learning, enabling individuals to make informed decisions about health-related concerns and empowering students to be self-directed consumers of health-care services.

The goals of the Health Center are consistent with maintenance of confidentiality provided in a caring comfortable atmosphere.

Required Student Information

All Berry College students are required to have certain information on file at the Health Center. This information includes a self-reported health history, a complete immunization record signed by a health care provider, a tuberculosis screening form signed by a health care provider, and a copy of your health insurance card. Berry College requires that students receive two Measles, Mumps, and Rubella vaccinations, and a Tetanus within the last 10 years.  Georgia state law requires all resident students to receive the meningococcal meningitis vaccine, or sign a waiver stating their understanding of the requirement, but expressing a choice to decline the vaccine. Students who are commuters are exempt from the meningitis requirement.  Without this information, students will not be permitted to register for their classes in the semester following their enrollment.  All forms may be accessed online by logging into Medicat Patient Portal with your VikingWeb credentials.

Health Insurance is strongly recommended for each student. Private health insurance options are available through the Affordable Care Act.  Please, refer to https://www.healthcare.gov/ for more information.  You may contact the Health Center for any question you have regarding insurance options.
