Faculty/staff Flu Shot Overview

Unless your department has prearranged payment for your flu shot, faculty and staff must schedule an appointment at the health center to receive a flu shot and are not eligible to attend walk-in flu shot clinics.These appointments are limited and may require a short wait. If a faculty or staff member whose department has paid for their flu shot cannot attend the special department-paid walk-in clinic on Oct. 3, they are eligible to attend any of the student walk-in flu shot clinics listed above.

At this time, we are not offering the high dose (65+) flu vaccine.
