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.
Annually, Health & Wellness provides the seasonal flu vaccine on the UNH Durham campus to students, faculty and staff.
If you are experiencing symptoms, call Health & Wellness at 603-862-9355 for guidance.

For the health and safety of staff and participants, you will need to schedule an appointment to receive the flu vaccine at the clinic. There will be no walk-in option to receive the vaccine.
If you are fully remote for work or classes and would like to receive the flu vaccine on campus you will need to have received a negative COVID test result within the past 7 days of coming to campus.
When you schedule your appointment via MyHealth&Wellness, you will also need to upload your insurance card information (instructions linked here).
For employees who are not covered by the USNH Cigna health insurance plan, please check with your insurance company prior to scheduling your appointment to ensure that they will cover the cost of the vaccine. You will be responsible for any remaining balance not covered by insurance.
Note: We do not have the FluMist® or the 65 and older high dose seasonal flu vaccine.
