Tulane students are required to receive a flu vaccine and submit documentation each flu season. Campus Health offers no cost flu shots on campus each fall via our annual flu clinics. Also, many pharmacies (Walgreens and CVS) and retail outlets (Target, Walmart) offer vaccines at low or no charge to you.
For students incoming in the summer or fall semesters, we would like to know if you received the flu shot during the previous flu season. If so, please upload proof of your vaccine to the Patient Portal. Please do this by July 15.
Please note that both new and returning students will be required to receive a flu shot during the upcoming flu season, which generally begins in October. Campus Health will announce dates for our annual flu clinic campaign when the latest vaccine becomes available.
For students incoming in the spring semester, please upload your proof of vaccine from the current flu season to the Patient Portal. Please do this by February 15.
Flu shots are available by appointment at the Health Center.
Students who are opting out of the flu vaccine for medical, religious or personal reasons can submit a waiver form via the Patient Portal. To access this form, log on to the Patient Portal, click on the Forms tab and scroll down to the Immunization Enrollment Forms section. Fill out and submit the form labeled Influenza Vaccine Waiver.
