The single dose flu vaccine is designed to protect against the flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year. The protection from the vaccination is designed to last throughout the flu season.
Spouses, partners and dependents, who are older than 18, of faculty and staff may also receive the vaccine for a charge of $20.
