Portage Health will offer four flu vaccine clinics on campus this fall. The vaccine is by injection at a cost of $30 payable at the time of service. Cash, check or credit card will be accepted. Shots will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis; no appointment is necessary.
Employees, retirees, family members and students are welcome to attend one of the flu clinics. Anyone under the age of 18 cannot be vaccinated without parental permission. A spouse and/or child may attend without the employee.
Be prepared to show a picture ID and insurance card. If you are insured by Michigan Tech’s Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) health plan, your vaccine is free of charge and will be billed to insurance if you present your BCBSM member ID card at the time of service. Students with Michigan Tech’s Aetna student health plan can also have their vaccine billed to insurance with their Aetna member ID card.
The flu clinics are as follows:
Wednesday, Oct. 15 during the Health Fair from noon to 4 p.m. in the Memorial Union Isle Royale Ballroom.
The following three clinics will be held in the Memorial Union Alumni Lounge:
- Tuesday, Oct. 21 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
