Where & When (to get vaccinated)

Gannett does not yet have flu vaccine for the 2016-17 flu season. Please check back in SEPTEMBER for an update.

Annual vaccination is an important step people can take to protect themselves and others from the flu. The equation is straightforward: the more people that get vaccinated, the fewer will get sick.

Plan to get your vaccine to maximize your protection throughout flu season! Vaccines are FREE to all Cornell students, staff, faculty, and retirees.

The quadrivalent flu shot is expected to provide protection against the four strains of influenza most likely to cause illness in a given year. A high-dose trivalent vaccine is available for staff, faculty and retirees ages 65 and older. Get more details.

Vaccine cost

  • FREE to Cornell students, staff, faculty, and retirees. Student spouses and domestic partners on SHP are also eligible. (Bring your Cornell ID.)
  • $35 for student spouses and domestic partners not on SHP. Spouses and domestic partners of staff and faculty should seek this vaccine from their primary care providers.

Vaccination for other members of the family

Though Gannett is not able to provide flu vaccines for children or for spouses and domestic partners of employees and retirees, pediatricians, primary care providers, pharmacies, and county health departments provide a range of vaccination opportunities to meet every family's needs.  

Afraid of needles?

You can still get vaccinated against flu viruses. Gannett offers nasal-spray vaccine to those eligible.

Age 65 or older?

The newer higher dose flu vaccine can be made available to Cornell staff, faculty, and retirees ages 65 and older.
