Medical Campus Flu Clinics

in General News
October 11th, 2013

There will be joint MED/GMS/SDM/SPH flu clinics at the medical campus so all students on the medical campus will have an opportunity to get a flu shot. If your program and/or courses require working with patients or spending any time in the hospitals or clinics then you must obtain a sticker to be placed on your BU ID after the flu shot.  If you do not comply you will NOT be permitted in these areas unless you wear a mask.
Following are dates, times and locations.

  • Nov 4th  from 11:00 am- 3:00 pm  in Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov. 7th from  4:00 pm  -7:00 pm in  Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov 14th   7:30 am-12:00 pm in   Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov 18th from 10:00 am -1:50 pm  in  Rooms  L212/L214

 

    Please note the following:

    CHARGES

    • Flu shot is covered 100% for the students who have BU’s Aetna Student Health Insurance.
    • Students with other health insurances will be charged $30 that will be placed on the student’s account.  Student Health Services (SHS) will provide a receipt to submit to their insurance for repayment.

    STICKERS

    • All students that attend these clinics will have a sticker applied to their ID regardless of which school or program they are in.
    • Students that attend a clinic on the CRC campus or at SHS will need to self-identify that they are in need of a sticker. We will then be able to apply the sticker at that time.
    • Students that choose to get a flu shot outside of clinics offered by SHS will need to provide a medical record showing that they received the vaccine. This medical record will need to be turned in to SHS.
      • This can either be walked in to SHS, mailed in, faxed in (617-353-3557), or the student can present this information at one of our clinics. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THIS INFORMATION – it is protected health information.
      • Once documented, you can check with Dr. Hee-Young Park at the GMS office to obtain a sticker.
