If You Test Postive for COVID Chart

Bivalent COVID-19 boosters are available for individuals 17 years and older (unless moderately or severely immunocompromised). The bivalent versions of the COVID-19 vaccine will offer protection against both the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 as well as the Omicron BA.4/BA.5 strain, which is now the predominant variant.

The bivalent booster must be administered at least two months after any other COVID-19 vaccine (primary series or other booster).

Please call (828)262-3100 to schedule an appointment.

"Bird Chlamydia" (Psittacosis)

We are currently getting a lot of calls regarding “bird chlamydia”(psittacosis) from celebratory duck pond swimmers.

Chlamydia psittaci is a bacteria that various fowl can carry. It is NOT the same as human chlamydia, (Chlamydia trachomatis,) which is a sexually transmitted infection.

Chlamydia psittaci does not cause a genitourinary infection. Testing for sexually transmitted infections (including chlamydia trachomatis) will not be diagnostic for psittacosis. We are always more than happy to provide testing and counseling for sexually transmitted infections, but swimming in the duck pond is NOT an indication to seek testing for any sexually transmitted infection.

Chlamydia psittaci can infrequently cause respiratory infections with symptoms that could include fever/chills, headache, myalgia (muscle aches), and cough. It can rarely cause severe illness and pneumonia. If you have respiratory symptoms, you can call 262-3100 and discuss your symptoms with a Health Service nurse. They can help decide if further evaluation is needed. Please be aware that further evaluation could include testing for covid and/or influenza. You can find good dependable information about psittacosis at the CDC’s website:

Student Health teams up with Appalachian Food Resource Hub

Student Health will be teaming up with the Appalachian Food Resource Hub. What is the Food Resource Hub you may ask? The Resource Food Hub is a place where students can go if they are in need of food, warm clothing, toiletry items, and even school supplies. They are located in East Hall and students would need to make an appointment before going. But EVEN better yet, we will be keeping a few food bags here at Student Health for the immediate student need. The food bags will be kept in Radiology when you need them.
