Statement from the Student Health Center:

All of the providers and staff at the Student Health Center (operated by Mosaic Family Care) are committed to supporting the health and mental health needs of the students at West Los Angeles College. 
 
Due to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s Safer at Home order, the Student Health Center on campus will be closed. However, Student Health Center providers and staff will be available to provide 100% virtual services for medical and mental health care.  Students who are currently enrolled will be able to access a medical provider for a phone or video consultation and prescription refills.  Students can also make an appointment to meet virtually with one of our counselors for psychological care through a confidential and HIPAA compliant video platform.  All students who call the Student Health Center will receive an automated message instructing them to contact the Mosaic Family Care office at (323) 226-9042
 
A patient care coordinator will be able to assist with scheduling an appointment with a Student Health Center medical provider or counselor.    Please make sure to inform the patient care coordinator that you are an enrolled student at West Los Angeles College and indicate whether you are seeking medical services or counseling services.
 
We want to let everyone know we are doing our best to keep our patients safe. Because of this, we ask for your help in protecting against Covid-19. The best protection is staying at home, washing your hands, avoid touching your face, avoiding large crowds, and staying away from those who are sick. If you are experiencing a cough, fever, and/or shortness of breath, we ask that you, please stay home and call us before walking into the clinic. A doctor may speak with you and, if needed, will prescribe you medications to your pharmacy. We want to thank you for following these recommendations. If you would like to know any additional steps you can take, please visit https://covid19.ca.gov/ or the CDC website: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/.

Flu Shots Available - $5 

The best way to protect against influenza (flu) is to get a flu vaccine every flu season. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious illness, hospitalization, or even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. The first and most important step in protecting against flu is to get a flu vaccine each season. CDC recommends everyone six months and older get an annual flu vaccine. 

 

Shots available on a first-come basis until supplies run out. Stop by during student health center hours or make an appointment by calling: (310) 287-4478.
