Flu Shots – Get Your Flu Shot Now!
If you missed the UHS Flu Vaccine Clinics, don't worry. You can still get a flu shot. All you need to do is call UHS at 585-275-2662 to schedule an appointment. We want you to be protected from the flu before the flu season hits this winter. The charge for the flu shot will be billed to your insurance plan. If your plan does not cover flu shots, then the charge ($20) will be sent to your tuition billing statement. The Aetna Student Health insurance plan covers the cost of flu shots. It's not too late to get a flu shot!
