Coronavirus (COVID-19): Public Health Emergency

The local emergency declaration was being made "out of an abundance of caution", and to ensure the county has all the resources needed to response to the illness.  "This does not mean there is any increased risk to the general public, in fact it is quite the opposite", county Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and county health officer Dr. Wilma Wooten said.


Primary Medical Care and Specialty Services

Quality, accessible and convenient outpatient medical care is provided for urgent illnesses, minor injuries, preventive care and chronic medical problems. Specialty services including travel medicine, allergy management, and other services are offered. An on-site pharmacy provides immediate dispensing of many commonly prescribed and over-the-counter medications during your appointment. A physician, nurse practitioner, and/or physician assistant along with a registered nurse are on duty during operating hours. In order to minimize wait times, students should schedule appointments in advance. Patients without appointments will be triaged by the registered nurse, who will determine whether the patient requires new urgent, same-day services or can be scheduled for another day.

Fight The Flu

How to fight the flu this season:  get the flu shot.  the flu vaccine is the best protection against catching the flu. if you missed the flu shot clinics on campus, you can still receive your free flu shot by making an appointment at the student health center while supplies last.  cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your arm when you cough or sneeze.  throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. wash your hands often with soap and water. if soap and water are not available, use an alcoholo based hand rub. do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth because germs spread this way.  if you are sick with flu-like symptoms, stay home for at lease 24 hours after your fever is gone. if your symptoms are worsending or you have other medical conditions or concerns, contact the student health center for further evaluation. www.sandiego.edu/health-center/ maher hall 140 phone 619-260-4595
