Flu shots are available on the Pullman campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Friday through Oct. 27.
The cost is covered by most insurance plans and no appointment is necessary. Flu Shot Fridays began Sept. 29 and enable WSU students, faculty, staff and community members to get vaccinated at the Washington Building. It takes about two weeks for your body to develop the antibodies that will protect you from the flu virus, so health experts advise getting vaccinated as early as possible. More information is available from Health and Wellness Services.
