Welcome to the Infirmary

It's time for flu shots - As we enter the fall season, we enter the time of year when flu viruses circulate.  The flu can cause serious illness.  A flu shot will safely reduce the chance of getting it and decrease the symptoms if  you are exposed to it.  You cannot get the flu from the shot. 
The flu shots will be available for Cadets at the Infirmary on October 22 & 23 from 1130-1800. Cadets will receive further instruction via email about when to report for the shot.

The VMI Infirmary is a modern medical facility located in the Post Hospital building on the VMI campus.  It is open 24 hours a day during the fall and spring semesters.  A team of nurses, a nurse practitioner and a physician evaluate and treat cadets for routine illnesses and injuries.  There are 18 inpatient beds for overnight observation and isolation for those cadets who cannot comfortably or safely stay in barracks.  Cadets with more severe illnesses are referred to the local hospital or a specialist for care.

There is no extra charge to visit the Infirmary or see the nurse or doctor.  Many medications are dispensed at no charge.  Lab tests ordered or appointments off Post will be the responsibility of the cadet.
