Flu Vaccine Clinics
Watch for announcements of Flu Vaccine clinics later in the season.
We accept EMU student insurance and EMU BCBS PPO (we regret that we are unable to bill Blue Care Network at this time).
We are able to provide immediate proof of vaccination for health careers students.
Students on the EMU student health insurance plan can get the vaccine for FREE.
The cost is $37.00 for those not covered by the plans above. For information or questions call University Health Services at 734.487.1122.
It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza virus infection. It's better to get vaccinated early in the fall, before the flu season really gets under way.
