Flu Vaccine Clinics
For the 2021-2022 flu season, Dartmouth expects 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. 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 should visit the Dick's House website for flu information).
Flu Vaccine Options: 2021
If you are enrolled in any of the Cigna health plans through Dartmouth College the flu vaccine is covered under your medical benefit so you can receive a free flu shot, with no copay.
Local pharmacies, such as CVS and Walgreens are offering flu vaccine.
Please call ahead to confirm vaccine availability and bring your Cigna ID card with you when you go to any of these pharmacies.
