Flu Vaccines Available on Campus Today

Flu vaccines will be available for faculty and staff members today, September 23, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Butler Library 208. A second clinic will be held on Thursday, October 8, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

No appointment is necessary. The following health insurance plans will be accepted: Blue Cross Blue Shield of WNY, Independent Health, Blue Choice, MVP, and Medicare Part B. Employees must present a valid health insurance ID card. Employees without a participating insurance plan will be charged $30 for the flu shot. The FluMist will not be available because of a delay in manufacturing.

Participation and acceptance of any insurance is not a guarantee of benefits or payment in full. Co-payments or a deductible may apply. Empire Plan enrollees may obtain their flu shots from an Empire Plan participating pharmacy without co-pay or at their doctor’s office (participating provider) for their usual co-pay should they wish to do so.

Please call Employee Benefits at 878-4821 or the member services department of your insurance company with questions regarding your health insurance coverage. The phone number should be on your insurance card.
