Where Can I Get the Flu Vaccine?

Flu vaccines will be available at the following dates and locations across campus. This vaccine is the flu mist and is free of charge to faculty, staff and students. You can also receive the flu vaccine by visiting Health Services. Please remember it is very important to get a flu vaccine this year during the COVID-19 pandemic. The two viruses present with similar symptoms clinically. You can be infected with both viruses at the same time. This could cause your body complications while battling both the flu and COVID-19 at the same time. It is still essential to wear a face covering and practice social distancing.​
