Students can receive free flu vaccines offered by University Health and Counseling Services, located in the Forsyth Building, on a walk-in basis. Times are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, visit the UHCS website.
Faculty and staff may seek vaccines through Boston Public Health Commission Clinics or their own clinician. Members of one of the health plans offered by Northeastern are eligible for a free flu shot at other locations. You may receive it in your doctor’s office or at any pharmacy in the nation that accepts Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Call the member service number on your Blue Cross card (1–888-543‑8770) to find a convenient location.
