Influenza (Flu) Immunizations
FLU VACCINE UPDATE as of 6/9/17:In an effort to prevent flu during the next year, we will be increasing the number of flu shots available to students for fall 2017 and offering them FREE to enrolled students (while supplies last). Check back to this page for current information on clinic dates and locations.
Appointments are scheduled through My Bronco Health Manager when the vaccine is available for scheduling appointments. All students are sent notification of flu clinic information via an email to their CPP email once clinic dates are established.
Students of high risk, as defined below by the CDC, are strongly urged to get vaccinated:
all persons aged ≥50 years;
adults and children who have chronic pulmonary (including asthma) or cardiovascular (except isolated hypertension), renal, hepatic, neurologic, hematologic, or metabolic disorders (including diabetes mellitus);
persons who have immunosuppression (including immunosuppression caused by medications or by HIV infection);
women who are or will be pregnant during the influenza season;
children and adolescents (aged 6 months through 18 years) who are receiving long-term aspirin therapy and who might be at risk for experiencing Reye's syndrome after influenza virus infection;
American Indians/Alaska Natives
persons who are morbidly obese (BMI ≥40)
Students at high risk should make an appointment with a Student Health Services clinician who will make sure that the Health Center reserves an appointment for their injection.
Note: During vaccine shortage conditions, supply is limited to high risk patients only.
