Only half of college students are vaccinated each year against the flu. Protect yourself, your peers, and your family by getting your flu shot this year. FIUTS is partnering with Hall Health Center to offer this flu shot clinic in a convenient location for our students.
Most insurance plans, including ISHIP, GAIP, and Apple Health managed care plans, will cover 100% of the cost of flu shots at a UW flu shot clinic. CIGNA plans, along with Apple Health without managed care do not cover the cost. If you do not have coverage, you can pay out-of-pocket – $40 for non-pregnant people, and $42 for pregnant people.
Bring your insurance card, a method of payment (check, credit, or debit are accepted), and photo ID to the flu shot clinic. To help us vaccinate as many people as possible, you may also print and complete this consent form (see below if you are 17 or younger) and bring it with you to the clinic.
The clinic is first come, first served.

What to bring
You must bring your method of payment (insurance card if contracted OR check/credit/debit) and your photo ID to the flu shot clinic.
Cost & insurance
There are two options in paying for your flu shot: bill your health insurance, or pay out-of-pocket.
The self-pay price of the flu vaccine is $40 for the standard non-pregnant adult vaccine, or $42 for the vaccine for pregnant people. You can pay with credit card, cash, or check.
Seattle Visiting Nurses Association, the organization providing the flu shots, can bill most health insurance plans, including:
UW’s International Student Health Insurance Plan (Lifewise)
UW’s Graduate Appointee Insurance Plan (Lifewise)
Apple Health managed care plans (Molina, UnitedHealthcare, Amerigroup, Coordinated Care, and Community Health Plan of Washington)
Regence plans (including Uniform Medical Plan)
If your insurance is contracted with Seattle Visiting Nurses Association, your flu shot should be covered 100% by your health insurance under federal law.
If you’re not sure about coverage, call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card and ask if “Seattle Visiting Nurses Association” is in-network with your insurance plan.
Non-contracted insurance (CIGNA, Apple Health without managed care)
CIGNA plans are not contracted with Seattle Visiting Nurses Association. If you have CIGNA, you can go to any of these pharmacies to get a flu shot, or pay out-of-pocket at the UW flu shot clinic.
Apple Health plans that do not have a managed care plan assigned will not cover the cost of the flu shot at the UW clinics. Many Washington State Native tribal members will have Medicaid without managed care. Contact the Health Promotion office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in this situation, or pay out-of-pocket at the flu shot clinic.
What types of flu shots does the clinic offer?
The clinic will provide the standard quadrivalent vaccine to non-pregnant adults. A limited supply of the thimerosol-free version of the vaccine is available to pregnant people.
The clinic does not provide the nasal spray, or the high-dose flu shot intended for people over the age of 65.
What if I am under 18?
If you are 17 or younger, your parent/guardian will need to sign a consent form prior to the flu shot clinic, and you will need to bring the signed form to the clinic.
How can I get a record of my flu shot?
Upon request, Seattle Visiting Nurses Association (SVNA) can give you a record of the vaccine at the time of the clinic. If you would like a verification after the clinic, email SVNA at email@example.com. We will email you the verification. Due to privacy policies, SNVA does not provide the verification to the University of Washington or your employer directly.
