Flu Vaccine

FIGHT THE FLU.  STOP THE SPREAD!!

IT'S NOT TOO EARLY TO GET YOUR FLU VACCINE!

In an effort to protect your health, Boston College Health Services has collaborated with Maxim Health Systems to provide STUDENT FLU VACCINATION CLINICS on campus. 

They will be held on:


TUESDAY OCT 2ND
&
THURSDAY OCT 4TH

FROM 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM

YAWKEY CENTER
MURRAY FUNCTION ROOM

Cost of the quadrivalent flu vaccine is $30*

Please note:  If you are under 18 you will NOT be able to obtain the vaccine at this clinic but you can call 617-552-3225 and schedule an appointment at Health Services for the vaccine.  At the time of your appointment, you will be required to bring a signed note from your parent or guardian giving us permission to administer the vaccine.

Payment for these vaccines may be made by cash (exact change), check, or credit card (please note, Maxim will charge an additional $1.50 for the use of credit cards). Please bring your insurance card as well so that if they have a contract with your particular insurance they will be able to charge them directly.

To expedite the sign-in process you can print and complete the necessary paperwork prior to arrival.  Please download, read and complete the following forms and bring them with you to the flu vaccine clinic:

Just some reminders on the best way to prevent the transmission of influenza:

1) Obtain the seasonal flu vaccine.

2) Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper arm.

3) Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 15-20 seconds, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.

4) Avoid close contact with sick people.

5) Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

Flu symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people who have been infected with this virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting.  If you should experience any of these symptoms or have any questions please call 617-552-3225 to speak with a nurse or to schedule an appointment.  Health Services has a new location on 2150 Commonwealth Ave with its entrance on St. Thomas More Road, across from Walsh.
