Health Services has received our shipments of seasonal influenza vaccine and scheduled dates and times to immunize our campus communities!  Flu shots will be given on both the Spartanburg campus (in the new Health Services facility on University Way near its intersection with Valley Falls Road) and on the Greenville campus (in Room 117 of the University Center).  Vaccine will be given by appointment only at both locations.  To schedule an appointment on the Spartanburg campus, please call Health Services at:  503-5191.  In Greenville, please schedule with the Front Desk Coordinator at:  552-4242, or sign-up in person at that reception window.  

Students who have not yet reached the end of the month of their 19th birthday may be eligible to receive the vaccine at no cost to themStudents with health insurance coverage or those who are beyond their 19th birth month will be charged $10 and provided with the appropriate documentation to submit for possible insurance reimbursement.  The cost for employees is $20.  This same documentation will be available to employees upon request.  Payment will be accepted via cash or check only, as Health Services is not equipped to accept credit or debit cards. 

 The dates and times for both locations are:

Wednesday, October 6: 1:00 – 5:00 PM
Thursday, October 7:  8:30 AM – 12:00 PM and 1:00 – 5:00 PM

Monday, October 25: 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM 

Appointments can be scheduled after the above dates as availability permits.  Health Services will not be able to administer vaccine to dependents as was done last year, as that was handled through a special federally-funded program due to the H1N1 pandemic.  For additional information regarding influenza, please visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website:  www.cdc.gov
