Dear Faculty and Staff: The resurgence of the COVID-19 virus around our country is intensifying on the heels of holiday travel and gatherings. Here in Onondaga County, we are experiencing rising infection rates and an uptick in hospitalizations. In response,…
Reminder: Schedule Your Flu Shot
Since the flu clinic opened on campus, we have administered approximately 7,250 flu shots to students, faculty and staff. Thank you again for promptly scheduling appointments to get your required flu shot!
Recognizing the growing interest from students, we not only expanded the number of appointments available during each time slot, but we also opened scheduling up to 72 hours in advance to help you plan even further ahead. If you haven’t scheduled an appointment yet, do so now. And if you schedule your flu shot at the stadium now until Oct. 27, you can complete the required COVID-19 surveillance testing too. The COVID testing site is located in the Stadium (enter Gate N) and open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
How to Schedule Your Flu Shot
- Log in to the Patient Portal with your SU NetID and password.
- Select “Appts” on the main menu.
- In the drop-down section:
- Under “Clinic,” select “Health Clinic”
- Under “Reason,” select “Flu Shot Appointment 2020”
- Under “Provider,” select the location for your appointment (stadium or Skybarn)
- Select “Submit”
- Select your appointment date and time (no more than 72 hours in advance).
Remember: students are required to get a flu vaccine. Only those who need religious/medical exemptions or those who are studying remotely and will not be accessing campus for the entire 2020-21 academic year are exempt from this requirement. Students must have a flu shot or a documented exemption to attend in-person classes, participate in on-campus activities and use on-campus facilities in the spring semester. Failure to comply will result in a referral to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
