Stop by the Pharmacy on the second floor to get your flu shot. No appointment is needed.
Reminder: Masks are required at the Student Health Center and available for patients to pick-up at hygiene stations upon entry.
The IU Bloomington flu clinics will offer a preservative-free, quadrivalent, single-dose vaccine called Fluarix that is manufactured by GSK. Neither the high-dose vaccine for those over 65 nor the eggless vaccine will be available at the IU Bloomington clinics. Staff, faculty, or students who need those types of vaccines are encouraged to seek them through an in-network provider.
Insurance information will be collected by the pharmacy when you receive your shot. Learn about insurance at the Student Health Center.
If you do not have insurance, the cost is $51.00 and can be paid by cash, check, credit/debit card or billed to your student account.
Please bring a photo ID and your University ID number.
Getting a flu shot protects yourself but also those around you who may be particularly vulnerable to the flu. Groups that are highest risk from the flu include the elderly, infants and those with chronic medical conditions. If you regularly interact with such people, you can help protect them by getting a flu shot.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all Americans older than 6 months get a flu vaccine each year, unless they have had a severe allergic reaction to the flu vaccine or one of its components in the past. Please note that some types of flu vaccine are produced now without the use of eggs, so there is no reason for those with an egg allergy not to get a flu shot.
