Flu vaccine clinics offered to ASU

October 01, 2010

Coming down with the flu may mean missing classes, skipping social engagements and generally feeling awful for a week or so.

Arizona State University students, faculty and staff can do their part to avoid the flu by stopping by one of several flu clinics and getting their seasonal flu vaccine that also protects against the H1N1 flu strain.

Vaccines will be given at the following times and locations: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Oct. 20, 21 and 28 in a tent at the northwest corner of the Memorial Union; 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Oct. 19 at University Center, room 822A at the Downtown Phoenix campus; and from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Oct. 26 at the Union Cooley Ballroom A at the Polytechnic campus. In case of rain, flu shots at the Tempe campus will be given inside Health Services. No appointment is necessary for the clinics. Vaccines are also available at health service locations during normal business hours.

To receive the shot at no charge, employees must show both a valid state-of-Arizona issued employee insurance card and a valid ASU Sun Card. All benefits-eligible ASU employees are welcome. Non-benefits-eligible employees may receive a flu shot for $16, payable by cash or check only.

Students can choose to have the $16 cost of the flu shot billed to their ASU student account or to their insurance company (please bring insurance card). Students must bring a valid ASU ID card. Students who have insurance through Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) must receive their flu vaccine from their health-care provider.
