A Flu Shot Is Just One Click Away

Seasonal Flu Vaccines are available in your neighborhood. Please visit https://a816-healthpsi.nyc.gov/FluPublic/searchByBoro.do , and put in your zip code to find the nearest site where seasonal vaccines are available.

H1N1 Flu Vaccines have started to arrive at Student Health Services in small quantities.

At this time Student Health Services is offering free H1N1 vaccine for students without pre-existing medical conditions as described above, and are 24 years of age or younger.
