Where & When (to get vaccinated)

Annual vaccination is the single most important step people can take to protect themselves and others from the flu.

Vaccines are FREE to all Cornell students, staff, faculty, and retirees. (Scroll down for information about vaccinations for family members.)

Flu vaccination on campus

There are two ways to get vaccinated on campus:

(1) Get vaccinated at Gannett

You may request a flu vaccine any time you're here for another medical appointment. Or make an appointment by calling us (607 255-5155) or using myGannett

(2) Come to a walk-in flu clinic

Don't forget to bring your Cornell ID!

About the 2015 vaccine

The current quadrivalent flu vaccine (available as shots and mist) provides protection against the four strains of influenza most likely to cause illness this 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 SHIP are also eligible. (Bring your Cornell ID.)
  • $35 for student spouses and domestic partners not on SHIP. 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.
