Flu Vaccinations

Help stop the spread of the flu. And reduce your chance of missing class or work.

Flu clinics are open to all University of Minnesota students, faculty, staff, retired faculty and staff, and dependents of these groups.

There is no out-of-pocket cost for these flu vaccinations, they are paid for through Student Services Fees for students and funds from Employee Benefits for staff and faculty. Students will be asked for—but are not required to provide—insurance information and permission to bill their insurance; and, will not have to pay for the vaccination even if their insurance does not cover the cost.

So get your flu shot. It’s quick. It’s easy. And it’s your best defense from getting the flu.

Why Get the Flu Shot? Herd Immunity.

By getting your flu vaccine, you’re protecting yourself and helping stop the spread of the flu to your family, friends and the community.

Contagious disease can’t become widespread if many people are immunized from diseases like the flu. That’s called herd immunity. So do it for the herd!
