Two seasonal influenza vaccine clinics on campus this fall:

1. Generally for UW-River Falls students:
Tuesday October 2nd, 2018 from noon-2:00 p.m. in the Trimbelle Room 231 in the University Center (provided by Student Health Services in collaboration with Pierce County Public Health Department)
. 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.

2. Generally for UW-River Falls faculty, staff, and their families:
Wednesday October 3rd, 2018 from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in the Trimbelle Room 231 in the University Center (provided in collaboration with Vibrant Health Family Clinics, sponsored by Student Health Services)
. Vibrant Health Family Clinics are providers for most of the UWRF employee insurance plans (Healthpartners, WEA, Humana), but are not providers for WPS State Plan. 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). Current UWRF students may also come to this clinic and their flu shot will be billed to their insurance (please bring insurance cards) or to Student Health Services if no insurance coverage.
