Schiffert Health Center is working closely with the local health department in following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding communicable diseases.
Ebola virus is currently causing an outbreak in several countries in West Africa. Anyone returning from an affected country needs to be aware of the symptoms of Ebola virus and seek medical attention immediately if any symptoms develop. Symptoms may appear anywhere from two to 21 days after exposure to the virus.
For concerns about Ebola exposure or travel to Ebola affected areas, please call the Montgomery County Health Department at 540-585-3310, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After hours, please call 540-585-3339. You may also call Schiffert Health Center at 540-231-8105, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Up to date information regarding the Ebola virus can be found on the CDC website.

Are you coming to Virginia Tech in the fall? All incoming students must turn in their completed Immunization History Form (PDF | 307KB) . This is a Virginia state law requirement and if you procrastinate on turning it in, you could experience a medical hold on registering for spring semester classes.
The health center provides patients with a broad spectrum of care that is both preventative and curative. Services include care for acute illnesses and injuries, as well as more chronic conditions.
Schiffert Health Center operates on an appointment-based system. In order to maximize the use of your time and ours, call 540-231-6444 to make an appointment, or make an appointment online through the Online Student Health Portal. If you have an urgent need and no appointment, we have a triage system where you can talk with a care provider who will advise you, refer you for same-day care, or suggest a scheduled appointment.
There are many concerns that you may have during your time at Virginia Tech, including the want or need to learn about various health concerns, such as sexually transmitted diseases, ways to stop smoking, or even how to eat right.

The student health fee, included in each year’s tuition, covers the majority of services provided by Schiffert Health Center—unlimited visits and most laboratory procedures. However, some services require a minimal health center charge.
