Influenza Vaccine


According to CDC guidelines, annual flu vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older, with rare exceptions, because it is an effective way to decrease flu illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths.  This is especially critical during the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce the overall burden of respiratory illnesses on the healthcare system.

Students get FREE flu shots at Student Health Services. No appointment or proof of insurance is necessary.

To get a flu shot, patients can request to be vaccinated as part of their scheduled in-person appointment with Student Health Services, or via walk-up accessibility at the Health Center building (Main Appointments Entrance).

Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff are welcome to get vaccinated through Student Health Services. Your in-network insurance card must be on file so Student Health Services can bill your insurance, with charges filed as part of your preventative benefits coverage.

Traveling Flu Shot Clinics

Because getting the flu shot is so important to maintaining a healthy campus, we are bringing the vaccine to you! Join us at any of our traveling flu shot clinics.

  • You must not have had Guillain-Barre syndrome.
