Since this year’s influenza season will be occurring in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, getting a flu vaccination is more important than ever. Besides protecting you against the flu, it will help reduce the chances of having both infections at the same time, which could lead to serious complications.
Also, by reducing the number of people affected by influenza, we can lessen the demands on our healthcare systems as they continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Influenza and COVID-19 share many of the same symptoms. Although we hope to have a safe and effective vaccine for COVID-19 in the near future, we have one for influenza now.
To that end, we are fortunate to be able to partner with Wegmans Pharmacy to offer flu shots on campus to all students, faculty and staff at the Park Center Alumni Arena. Pre-registration is required and please bring your insurance cards with you to the clinic. Your insurance will be billed, but there are no out-of-pocket costs.

SUNY Cortland and Wegmans plans to hold a fourth clinic on campus at a date to be announced.
There are multiple spots available for each time slot, and they will let you sign up until all openings for that time are taken.
