. The cost for flu shots (quadrivalent) at this campus clinic will be free for students and $35 for non-students (so anyone can receive a seasonal flu shot at this clinic for $35). Pierce County Public Health will be able to bill some insurance companies, so persons are encouraged to bring their insurance cards.

A claim will be filed with your health insurance, but must present a valid health insurance card. If you have any questions about benefits you should contact your insurance plan directly. The cost for flu shots (quadrivalent) at this campus clinic if you do not have health insurance coverage is $35 (check or cash only).
