Flu Shots 2020-2021

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

APPOINTMENT REQUIRED!

As a safety precaution related to the pandemic, Watkins Health Services traditional flu shot clinics will not be offered this fall. Flu shots are available Monday through Friday to students, faculty and staff by appointment only. Flu vaccine will be available while supplies last. The cost of the flu vaccine is $35 and can be billed to most insurance companies. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide a vaccine information sheet (PDF).
