General Appointments

Students who are unable to attend a clinic can schedule an appointment with University Health Services to receive the vaccine. Appointments will take place every Thursday and Friday starting September 2 from 8:15 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. in the Student Health Center. 

What to bring

Students attending the vaccine clinic should bring their Penn State ID. Students should also bring a copy of their health insurance card or upload their insurance information to myUHS ahead of the clinic. The vaccine is free to students; however, University Health Services will bill students' health insurance for administration fees. (Health Insurance is not required to receive a vaccination.)

Incentives

From June 7- August 23, students who have shared proof of their vaccination status with the University will be eligible for a weekly drawing for prizes including $1,000, Barnes & Noble gift card, or a football signed by Penn State Football coach James Franklin. To be entered in the drawing, students MUST complete the online incentive form.

Flu Vaccine Clinics

Each fall, University Health Services hosts a series of student flu vaccine clinics at the University Park campus. Students must schedule an appointment in advance to receive a flu vaccine during any of the clinics; students at Commonwealth Campus locations are encouraged to contact their on-campus health service (if applicable) or local provider to inquire about clinics in their area.

In addition to the convenience and time savings that flu vaccine clinics provide, students receiving the vaccine at a clinic will be exempt from administration and appointment fees.

Students are also welcome to schedule a private appointment with University Health Services to receive the flu vaccine at any time.
