Sign-up for On-Campus Flu Shot Now!

Flu clinics will be held October 26 and 28, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the Council Chamber of the Templeton Student Center on the undergraduate campus. Advance sign-ups are required.

We have had an amazing response to our flu clinic sign-ups! More than 400 community members signed up for our clinics on October 26 and 28.

As a result, we have partnered with our vendor to expand capacity and open up more vaccination appointments for Thursday, October 28. You can access the additional appointments here. Advance sign-ups are required.

The clinics will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Council Chamber of the Templeton Student Center on the undergraduate campus.

Getting the flu vaccine is particularly critical this year, given the similarity between COVID-19 and flu symptoms. Keeping total flu infections on campus to a minimum also will help support in-person instruction and extracurricular activities.

Remember, to participate in the clinics, our outside vendor is requiring that you must either:

  1. Be enrolled in one of these health insurance plans (in which case you will not be charged for your flu shot); or

  2. Pay $30 at the clinic (cash or check) to cover the cost of the vaccination.

Note that students enrolled in the student health insurance plan will pay nothing for their flu shot. Lewis & Clark employees participating in one of the college’s Kaiser medical plans are eligible to receive a flu vaccine at these clinics, with no out-of-pocket expense.

If you desire flu vaccination, but the above criteria are barriers for you, please e-mail healthed@lclark.edu for guidance about other possible ways to receive a flu vaccine. As a reminder, our on-campus flu clinics are only for seasonal influenza vaccine, not for COVID vaccine.

It is very important that you bring your completed insurance and consent form with you to the clinic.

Finally, we still need a few volunteers (faculty or staff) for one-hour shifts to support the clinics. Volunteers will assist with paperwork and check-in. If you are a faculty or staff member, please consider volunteering for a one-hour shift. Sign up here.
