UB is offering the flu vaccine free-of-charge (with insurance, which all students are required to obtain privately or is provided by UB) for members of the university community, the school said in an email.
Students, faculty and staff can now receive the vaccine on all three UB campuses. No appointments are necessary, but individuals will need to present their UB card upon arrival. The sites will be open through Nov. 18.
The schedules for the sites are as follows:
North Campus: Tuesdays, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in 10 Talbert Hall
South Campus: Wednesdays, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in 7 Diefendorf Hall
Downtown Campus: Thursdays, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in room 2211 Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences
Although the flu vaccine isn’t required, public health officials strongly encourage students to get inoculated to protect themselves and others from infection. The flu season typically lasts from October to May.
UB will also be offering COVID-19 vaccines at these three locations.
