Protect yourself from the flu

It’s time for your flu vaccine, and Student Health Services is ready to help.
Why it matters: Each year, there are millions of flu cases in the United States and thousands of flu-related deaths.
Available for faculty, staff and students: The vaccine is available to faculty, staff and students at no cost as long as you upload your insurance card to MyHealthSpace. Medicare members will need to file for reimbursement.
Make an appointment: A limited supply of vaccines is available at the Center for Health and Well-Being on a first-come, first-serve basis. Anyone interested in getting the vaccination can make an appointment.
Off-campus options: Alternate locations to receive the flu vaccine are at local drugstores, CVS, Walgreens, the health department or your primary care physician’s office. Call in advance to ensure the location is offering the vaccine and to ask about cost.
