Student Health has the quadrivalent flu shot available. The charge is $72, which is generally covered by insurance (the UI plans do cover the charge - check with your plan). The charge can also go on your U-bill. 

To make an appointment at our Westlawn location, call us at 319-335-8394 to schedule your visit. If you prefer a walk-in appointment, please go to our IMU location to receive your flu shot.

Additionally, during the month of October on Monday and Tuesday, Student Health will remain open at Westlawn from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm for walk in flu shots. No appointment is necessary.

Flu vaccines take about two weeks for full immunity to develop, so we encourage you to get vaccinated as soon as you can this fall, before flu starts circulating in our community. The CDC strongly recommends getting vaccinated against the flu (influenza) this year. The timing is perfect to get it now. Keep yourself and your fellow students, your family, and your community healthy!
