Health Services

Health Services at Mount Mercy supports the physical and psychological needs of students, faculty and staff on campus. A physician assistant is available to students, faculty, and staff to help with specific health needs and to assist in maintaining and improving your overall well-being.

Upload Your Vaccination Information

As we communicated previously, we are committed to in-person learning this year. To best protect our community’s well-being, we have adapted an indoor mask mandate and will continue to monitor local data and CDC guidance.

In order to better understand our on-campus vaccination rate and to support contact tracing this year, we are asking that fully vaccinated students share a copy of their COVID-19 vaccine cards.
