Flu Vaccine Clinic – Tuesday, Oct. 9

Save the Date! UHS Campus-wide Flu Vaccine Clinic

UHS will be holding the campus-wide Flu Vaccine Clinic on Tuesday, October 9 from 10:30-6:00 in the Goergen Athletic Center. All students, staff, and faculty are welcome. No appointments are needed for the clinic. Getting a flu shot every fall is recommended for anyone who would like to reduce the likelihood of getting the flu during the flu season.

Please bring proof of health insurance with you. Bringing a copy of both sides of your insurance card is recommended. The UR Student Health Insurance Plan (Aetna) covers the cost of the flu vaccine.

If you are on another health insurance plan, we suggest calling your insurance company to check if your plan covers the cost of the vaccine in Rochester. Some plans do not cover the cost of the vaccine when you are out of the area in which you live. If your plan does not cover the cost of the flu vaccine, the cost is $30. This charge will be billed to your student billing statement (students only) or to you directly (all others).

The consent form you need to complete to receive a flu shot at the Flu Vaccine Clinic will be posted on this site by Wednesday, October 3. Completing the form and making a copy of both sides of your insurance card before you come to the clinic will save you time at the clinic.

For information about the flu and the flu vaccine, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you have questions about the UHS Flu Vaccine Clinic, write to ldudman@uhs.rochester.edu.
