The Wellness Center is anticipating receipt of a supply of the seasonal flu vaccine in the coming weeks. The vaccine will be made available to currently registered students at the Graduate Center and the Graduate School of Journalism. Although this vaccine has been offered free of charge in the past through The New York City Department of Health, the CUNY administration has received notice that this arrangement has been discontinued. Therefore, the Wellness Center - Student Health Services at the Graduate Center will be offering the flu vaccine at a discounted cost of $12 in exact change, please.
You must have your student ID (with the Fall 2013 validation sticker) available to present at reception in room 6422 upon arrival.
