All unvaccinated college students — Flu vaccine and flumist available

If you are a college student and have not had your flu vaccination, it’s not too late. The Trumbull Monroe Health District has a limited supply of flu vaccine and flumist available. Call TMHD at 203-452-5195 to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you.

“This is an opportunity for college students home for the holiday break to get vaccinated before influenza season is in full swing,” said Patrice Sulik, TMHD Director of Health. “While everyone is welcome, students living in dormitories and close living quarters are at increased risk for contacting infectious diseases.”

TMHD accepts Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Connecticare and Medicare, Part B for both flu and pneumonia vaccinations. The cash price for flu vaccination is $25 (cash and checks accepted).  All insurance cards must be brought to the clinic for billing purposes, as well as a driver’s license (if you have one). Participants are responsible for the insurance co-pay or deductible, at the time of vaccination.

If your insurance company does not fully cover the cost of the vaccination, TMHD will bill you the balance. Residents who are unable to pay the vaccination fee or who are unable to attend the above clinic times should contact the Public Health Nurse.

For more information on the flu clinics or vaccinations, contact TMHD at 203-452-5195.
