MCC Health Services welcomes all international students to the college community! The staff in Health Services are here to provide healthcare to you or link you to medical providers in the community.

  • Students can be seen Monday-Friday, whenever classes are in session, including summer. Please call (585) 292-2018 or stop by 3-165 to schedule an appointment. If you need care when we are closed, please see the Wellness Resources page for local urgent care centers and hospitals.
  • There is no fee for services performed in our office beyond the $5 student health fee charged each semester on your college bill (but outside lab tests and prescriptions are costs to you).
  • International students should forward the required immunization records to our office as soon as possible. We can provide MMR vaccines in our office if you have not met the requirements prior to arrival.
  • Tuberculosis screening is highly recommended for any MCC students who have lived within the past five years in countries where TB is common.We will provide TB screening at no charge for these students. Please call us to schedule your screening once you arrive at MCC- we can often give you the MMR vaccine at the same time if needed.TB screening is done Mondays,Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Fridays- not Thursdays.
  • It is easier to identify countries of low rather than high TB prevalence. Therefore, students should undergo TB screening if they have arrived from countries OTHER THAN those listed below:
