Services Offered at the LoGrasso Health Center
The student Health Center is open to all SUNY Fredonia students. Those who have paid the mandatory health fee are seen at no charge. Students are seen by appointment or on a walk-in basis. Services offered are as follows:
Immunizations and allergy shots
Allergy injections are administered to students on a limited basis. The health center staff will administer allergy injections only if the student has reached a stable, maintenance dosage. For example, the student receives the same dose each week or month. The student must provide their own serum and specific orders from the prescribing allergist. Allergy injections that are on a "build up" phase cannot be given. The health center does charge a small fee for this service. The health center staff can assist with making arrangements for the students to receive build up allergy injections at a local physician's office if requested.

In the event that a student has a significant illness that necessitates missing three or more days of classes, the medical provider will notify Student Affairs. Student Affairs has access to the student's schedule and will notify all professors of the illness.
