UHS 2021 Flu Vaccine Clinics

This year’s University Health Service sponsored Flu Vaccine Clinic for University of Rochester students will be held on:

  • Thursday, October 14, 10:00 am – 5:30 pm
  • Goergen Athletic Center, Field House
  • Library Road entrance (across from Fauver Stadium)


Flu shots are given by appointment

Please schedule an appointment through UHSConnect. If you have not registered for UHSConnect, you will need to do so before scheduling your appointment. For directions on how to register, please visit this page.


Please note essential steps to receive a flu vaccine

  1. Schedule an appointment through UHSConnect. See instructions at the end of this message.
  2. Flu Vaccine Consent forms will be available for you to complete on-site.
  3. Bring your Student ID.
  4. Bring your health insurance card.
    • If you are on the student Aetna insurance plan, you can go online to download your insurance card to your phone. Click on “Get Your ID Card” for instructions.
    • If you are on another insurance plan (your parent’s or your spouse’s plan), please bring your card or a picture of your card on your phone. You will need to provide the insurance holder’s date of birth.
    • The flu shot is covered in full for all active members of the UR student health insurance plan (Aetna) and generally covered in full by most private insurance plans. Contact your insurance plan directly for specific coverage details.

Due to current staffing constraints, UHS is not able to host a flu clinic for faculty or staff this year and encourage employees to get their flu vaccine through a local pharmacy or through your primary care provider.

Eastman School of Music students are encouraged to schedule as well, however, we will be holding a flu clinic the week of October 18th at that location – more information to follow.
