Check with your insurance. Most vaccinations are considered “preventive” and could be covered by your insurance if you receive the vaccine from your regular physician.

Student Health Services will provide vaccines for students whether you have insurance or not. If you have health insurance we can file your claim. Once we receive communication back from your insurance company we will complete the transaction and put any remaining balance on your myWSU account.

Please call Student Health Services for availability of the vaccine. You may be asked to prepay for the vaccine, depending on availability.

Influenza, Seasonal, inactivated

Price fluctuates yearly

Influenza, or "the flu," is a contagious disease spread by coughing, sneezing or through nasal secretions.

Symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle aches
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Runny or stuffy nose

Other illnesses have similar symptoms and can often be mistaken for influenza.

We offer the inactive or killed vaccine and we recommend you get it as soon as it becomes available. The earlier you get vaccinated, the more effective it is. Remember influenza can occur at any time.

The influenza vaccine is available October through March, or until supplies run out.

The flu shot does not give you a live flu virus. This is a common myth and the reason people avoid the flu shot. Keep in mind the vaccine takes a couple of weeks to take full effect. Consuming high amounts of Vitamin C and fluids help defend against the virus, but there is still a chance you can get the flu.

$115.00 per dose (administration fee included)

We offer the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4). Bacterial meningitis is a serious illness that anyone can contract, and it can cause blood infections. College freshmen living in dorms have an increased risk of contracting meningitis.

If the first dose of vaccine is given before age 16, a booster is recommended. If the first dose of vaccine is given after 16 years of age, only one dose is needed, so a booster is not necessary.
