IU faculty, staff, and students can stop by the Student Health Center Pharmacy on the second floor during normal operating hours. No appointment needed.
IU students can also get their flu shot when they visit the Student Health Center for any non-sick visit. Ask your provider or nurse during your appointment.
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.
Flu shots are free with most insurance. Insurance information will be collected when appointments are scheduled.
If a student does not have insurance, the flu shot is free.
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.
