Adelphi University Health Services strongly encourages our Adelphi community to take measures that safeguard their family, friends, and colleagues during flu season.
Given the continued threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important this year to get your flu vaccination by the end of October, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To assist in this process, we are once again offering flu vaccines at no cost to you, in conjunction with CVS Pharmacy — you’ll find details for making an appointment below.

We recognize this recommended timeframe for a flu vaccine could overlap with when many of you become eligible for a booster dose of your COVID-19 vaccine. The CDC has now advised that it is safe to receive a COVID-19 and other vaccines at the same time—this is a change from previous guidance to wait a minimum of 14 days and we recommend that you discuss your vaccine schedule with your physician.
The flu (influenza) is a contagious respiratory illness that can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Read more about the flu, vaccines, FAQs and tips on the CDC website.
Adelphi’s current mask mandate for all individuals on campus combined with other mitigation steps we take to control COVID-19 transmission will also help protect you from influenza.
Stay home if you feel or become sick. It is Adelphi’s policy that you should not return to work or school after an extended illness until cleared by a medical provider (a doctor’s note is required).
