COVID, flu vaccines available at on-campus clinics

Published September 16, 2022

COVID-19 and flu vaccinations will be available to all members of the UB community at three on-campus clinics beginning Sept. 20.

The COVID-19 vaccine is free for all. Flu shots are covered by insurance; no copay is required. The cost of flu shots for those without insurance is $35.

To receive either vaccination, students, faculty and staff must present a UB identification card. No appointments are necessary.

Organized by the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, the clinics — located on the North, South and Downtown campuses — will operate each week through Nov. 10. The schedules:

  • North Campus: Tuesdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Student Union lobby.
  • South Campus: Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., 105 Harriman Hall. The clinic will not be open on Oct. 26.
  • Downtown Campus: Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., 2211A Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

The effort is a collaboration between the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, UB Student Health Services, Tops Pharmacy and Rutowski Pharmacies. UB pharmacy school faculty and students volunteers will provide vaccinations and assist with patient education and counseling, and clinic coordination.

In addition to helping the UB community fight the spread of COVID-19 and the flu, the initiative allows students to gain valuable clinical experience by working under the supervision of community pharmacists and UB pharmacy school faculty members.
