ATTENTION UNL FACULTY & STAFF: If you wish to have your insurance billed for the flu shot, please make an appointment at UHC during regular business hours by calling 402-472-5000. Unfortunately, flu shots given at our walk-in clinics cannot be billed to your insurance, and UHC cannot provide an insurance-ready form. For detailed information, please see the Faculty & Staff link below.
For questions about our clinics, call 402-472-7477.
Students also may receive their free flu shot by scheduling an appointment at UHC during regular business hours. Due to high traffic in the Medical Clinic, please expect a wait.
We are giving quadrivalent flu shots, which protect against four different flu viruses.
Flu shots are covered by student fees. No payment is needed.
What to Bring:
Your NCard and a completed flu shot form. If you are 18 or younger, your parent or legal guardian must complete, have notarized and send with you this Power of Attorney form if it has not already been provided to UHC OR they must fill out and send with you the flu shot form linked above.
While our price of $35 for flu shots remains the same as last year, the process has changed. If you are billing to insurance, your individual policy will determine the amount paid by insurance. You may be responsible for deductible and coinsurance.
Please make an appointment at UHC for any date after Sept. 22. Due to high student traffic in the Medical Clinic, please expect a wait during the check-in process.
Attend our special appointment-only flu shot clinic the Friday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 25) from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Call 402-472-5000 to make an appointment.

In general, the flu is worse than the common cold. Symptoms such as fever, body aches, tiredness and cough are more common and intense with the flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Learn More
Does the flu shot give you the flu?
No, a flu shot cannot cause flu illness. The most common side effects from the flu shot are soreness, redness, tenderness or swelling where the shot was given. Learn More
