Annual Flu Vaccination

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

Because of the close proximity within which we work, live, and study, annual vaccination is recommended for students, faculty, and staff at colleges and universities by the CDC and the American College Health Association. Vaccination is especially important for people who are at higher risk of developing flu-related complications.

Each fall, Cornell Health provides flu shots (both regular dose, and high dose for those age 65+) and FluMist nasal spray for Cornell community members.
