As we approach the onset of the flu season, Wayne State University will once again require that all students, faculty and staff who intend to be on campus for any day during the fall and/or winter semesters receive a flu shot by Oct. 20, 2021.
You can submit your proof of flu vaccination online. Individuals may also apply online for a waiver of the requirement (PDF) based on legitimate health or religious reasons. These requests will be reviewed by the Campus Health Committee.
Members of the Wayne State community can receive their flu shot from the Campus Health Center (CHC) at no out-of-pocket cost. If their insurance does not cover the flu shot or if they are uninsured, they will not receive a bill.
There are two ways to get vaccinated by the CHC on campus:
Flu shots can also be obtained at any convenient location, including your primary care provider or most pharmacies.
As we continue to navigate the pandemic, vaccines for COVID-19 and the flu play a crucial role in keeping our community safe and allowing us to offer in-person classes and on-campus events. Thank you for your continued cooperation and commitment to your fellow Warriors.
