Flu Vaccine Clinics
Dartmouth recommends all members of its community, both students and employees, to get a flu vaccine. While the flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, it has many other benefits and is part of a comprehensive public health strategy to reduce the burden of flu, which can flatten the curve of respiratory illnesses overall, help protect one another from flu, and preserve medical resources for care of patients with COVID-19.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends an annual flu vaccine for anyone over the age of 6 months who do not have contraindications. If you have questions about getting a flu vaccine, please contact your primary care provider.
Please see below for options to receive your flu vaccine (students: visit the Dick's House website for flu information).
