Flu Clinics

Flu season is upon us, and while last year was a mild flu season due to physical distancing and masking requirements, this year we anticipate an increase in flu infections. During the COVID-19 pandemic, influenza vaccine will be especially critical to reduce the overall impact of respiratory illness, protect the vulnerable populations and decrease the burden on the health care system.

We have arranged for two flu clinics on campus for students, faculty and staff, hosted by Pelmeds Pharmacy. They will be held in the Hogan Ballroom. The first is Thursday, Oct. 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The second is Wednesday, Oct. 27 from noon to 7 p.m. Please use the following links to register for an appointment and complete the required forms.

Flu Shot Requirement For Students

The influenza vaccine will be required for all students. The immunization requirements apply to all students who live on or come to campus at any time. Students may apply for a medical or religious exemption. More information will follow on the deadline to upload your immunization status, and instructions for uploading your vaccine.
