Immunizations

Free Flu Vaccines Are Here!

VCU Student Health offers free flu shots to all VCU students.  The flu shot is safe and does not cause the flu. 

  • Students may receive the flu shot during immunization hours or immediately following a scheduled medical appointment.
  • All students are encouraged to get the flu vaccine, especially students considered high risk for flu complications, such as those with asthma, diabetes, and other chronic medical issues.
