Flu Vaccine Requirement for Students

Purdue is requesting all students obtain their influenza vaccine this fall between September 1st and October 31st. Those who are taking classes remotely this fall do not have to come to campus for their vaccines and can utilize their healthcare provider or community pharmacy should they choose. Students who are unable to get the vaccine due to a medical condition or religious reason will need to complete the Purdue University declination form. Students must upload their declination form to the Patient Portal. The declination form can be found here.

There will be several On-campus flu shot events and locations. More information about locations and dates can be found here.

Flu vaccines administered at PUSH will be billed to insurance, at your request.
