Each year, the seasonal flu makes its way to campus resulting in missed days of work and classes. This virus spreads rapidly among students because of close living conditions, lowered resistance, stress, etc., and campus communities have the potential to face significant epidemics each winter.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that the seasonal flu vaccine is the single most effective method for preventing the seasonal flu.
Students, faculty and staff can make an appointment to receive the seasonal flu vaccine at Health and Wellness.
Costs are as follows:
Free for students who have paid the health fee
$25 for students who have not paid the health fee
No out-of-pocket cost to UNH employees and their dependents (age 18 and older) who are Cigna subscribers through UNH who present a valid Cigna card at the clinic. The claim for the cost of the vaccination ($25) will be processed directly to Cigna. For other employees not insured through the UNH Cigna employee plan, the $25 is due at the time of vaccination.
The shots are administered by UNH Nursing students.
