Annual Flu Vaccination

Fall flu vaccine clinics

Wegmans Pharmacy logo

Cornell Health partners with Wegmans Pharmacy to provide our annual flu vaccination clinics.

Getting vaccinated each year is the best way to protect yourself – and others – against seasonal influenza.

Annual flu vaccination is always strongly recommended for college students due to the highly contagious nature of influenza and the close proximity within which students live and study. Flu vaccination is especially important during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic to help prevent individuals from conflating symptoms or experiencing both illnesses simultaneously. 

See information from the CDC for people who are at higher risk of developing flu-related complications.
