UP Health System Portage will be offering meningitis and flu vaccine clinics on Michigan Tech’s campus this fall.
The quadrivalent flu vaccine is by injection at a cost of $40 payable at the time of service. Cash, check or credit card will be accepted. Students with Michigan Tech’s United Health Care (UHC) student health plan can have their flu vaccine billed to insurance with their UHC member ID card. Employees, retirees and family members insured by Michigan Tech’s Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) can also have their flu vaccine billed to insurance with their BCBSM member ID card. This does not include retirees that have Blue Cross insurance through MPSERS.
The meningitis vaccine is by injection at a cost of $159 with a flu shot or $199 without a flu shot. Payment is expected at the time of service and will not be billed to insurance.
