UD employees are encouraged to use their employee health insurance benefits to cover the cost of the immunization. Many insurance plans will cover the full cost of the vaccine. Individuals will be billed for any uncovered portion of the vaccine. Individuals with an HMO plan may be required to pay a copay unless they receive the vaccine from their designated primary care provider.
Student Health Services (SHS) is offering flu vaccination clinics for students every Friday during October and November by appointment only; appointments can be made by visiting the Student Health website.
Students who cannot make it to these clinics can schedule an appointment by calling Student Health at 302-831-2226 (option 1). Forms can be completed in advance online.
The cost of the vaccine is $22. Students with the University of Delaware Student Insurance Plan will have the charge billed directly to Highmark. Students without the University of Delaware Student Insurance Plan will have the charge billed to the student account and will be offered an itemized bill to submit to their insurance plan. Student Health Service may also submit billing to most Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna plans.
SHS is located in Laurel Hall, at the south end of the Green.
