Flu Vaccine Update

Posted on October 11, 2020 | Filed under General News

Winslow Health Center has received its second limited batch of influenza vaccine for students. As a reminder, the cost is $25 – we will accept cash or a check made payable to Allegheny College — you also have the option of billing to your student account. Students must call ahead to schedule an appointment – no walk-ins will be accepted. Flu shots will be first called, first served. To schedule an appointment, please call Winslow at (814) 332-4355. Emailed appointment requests will not be accepted. We also have an update for staff and faculty. Unfortunately, Northwest Community Pharmacy has also had trouble with their order for influenza vaccine and hasn’t been able to get in the stock that they expected. We have called the other major chain pharmacies and Allegheny’s PPO and High Deductible Highmark plans are accepted with zero copay at CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid for flu shots. We recommend that you call ahead of time to ensure that they still have some in stock. Further information and updates for students, staff, and faculty will be communicated via MyAllegheny. Please call Winslow Health Center at (814) 332-4355 if you have any questions.
