Fall 2023 Campus Vaccination Clinics
The last clinic for 2023 is Tuesday, December 5 from 10:00am-2:00pm in the Pond Room in the Michigan Union. Stop by for your influenza and COVID-19 vaccines and for free COVID-19 rapid antigen tests. Free tests are also available at Pierpont Commons. Please note the tests expire by 12/31/2023.
- It is safe to receive a flu vaccination and a COVID-19 vaccination at the same time. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine and about the flu vaccine.
- No appointment is necessary; clinics are drop-in only.
- U-M students and campus faculty and staff can participate. Michigan Medicine employees, learners and volunteers can get more information about getting a flu shot through Occupational Health Services.
- If you recently had COVID-19, you should wait to receive any COVID-19 vaccination at least until your symptoms are resolved and criteria to discontinue isolation have been met. You may consider delaying a COVID-19 vaccine dose by 3 months from symptom onset or positive test (if infection was asymptomatic).
- You must be at least 18 years old.
- Clinics are available across campus from mid-September to mid-November.
When preparing for the vaccination clinic, be sure to:
- Wear appropriate clothing so the vaccine can be administered in your upper arm.
- Bring your health insurance card.
- If your health insurance does not cover vaccinations or if you are not using insurance, the out-of-pocket cost for a flu vaccination is $44. The out-of-pocket cost for COVID-19 vaccinations will be shared when available.
- If you do not have health insurance, talk to staff at a clinic or visit a retail pharmacy to learn about the Bridge Access Program which provides vaccination for free.
- If you are feeling ill, wait until you are feeling better to get vaccinated. We are unable to vaccinate anyone with a fever over 100.5° F.
- Please wear a mask if you are experiencing a rash or new cough.
- Many clinics are run by Michigan Medicine; make sure you have a Medical Record Number (MRN). If you are unsure if you have an MRN, please contact Michigan Medicine Patient Registration at (866) 452-9896 and have your insurance card in hand when you call.
If you cannot attend a clinic:
- Students can also get vaccinations from their primary care physician, or most pharmacies, or through an appointment at UHS.
- Faculty and staff, as well as spouses or otherwise qualifying adults, dependents and retirees, can get vaccinations at their doctor’s office, local clinic or most pharmacies. When a shot is administered at a pharmacy, there is no cost when either the member’s medical or prescription drug insurance card is provided. Do not use both cards or there could be confusion. Learn more about coverage through U-M’s health plans.
Details on clinics at UM-Dearborn and UM-Flint and information on departments hosting their own clinic are available on MHealthy’s Flu Shot page.
