Students: Get your free flu shot

Medical Services provides free flu shots for CU Boulder students in a variety of locations on campus during the flu season. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect against flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

Flu shots are by appointment only. Medical Services is unable to provide flu vaccines to CU Boulder staff and faculty.
