Flu Shots

Oct 21, 2021
3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Description

This year’s on-campus flu shot clinics will be provided by Super Shot. To allow for social distancing and overall flow, participants will be required to reserve an appointment online through the Super Shot scheduling system. Step-by-step instructions for scheduling an appointment are found under More About This Event.

Prior to your appointment, Eric Manor, director of Wellness, will send an appointment reminder email that includes the 2021 Consent Form. Please print this form, complete it before your appointment, and bring it with you the day of your flu shot.

Our flu shot clinics will not accept Medicare this year and will not have the high-dose vaccine that is recommended for those 65 and older. Your primary care physician and most local pharmacies carry the high-dose vaccine and accept Medicare.

Flu shots are available to all enrolled students, faculty, staff, and spouses (includes family members age 13 and over). The vaccine is covered by the Purdue and IU Anthem medical plan as well as most other health insurance providers. If you have health insurance, participants are not eligible to pay for the vaccine out of pocket. A claim must be submitted to your insurance company by Super Shot.

For those who don’t have health insurance, the cost is $15. Cash, credit/debit cards, and checks will be accepted. A limited number of free flu shots are available for students who do not have health insurance. You must have your insurance and ID card with you.

Please note that flu shots will also be available at your primary care provider, the Campus Health Clinic, and local pharmacies.

On the day of the flu shot, you must:

  • Not be sick or have a fever
  • Bring your insurance card and ID
  • Bring your completed 2021 Consent Form
  • Wear clothing, such as a short-sleeved top, to make it easier to be vaccinated in your upper arm
