Flu Shot Cost

I have the university Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan

Students with the Mason Student Health Insurance Plan can get their flu shot for FREE at any Student Health Services clinic; your insurance covers the cost of the flu vaccination at an in-network provider.

I have another health insurance plan

Flu vaccination is generally no-cost with most health insurance plans when you get your vaccine with an in-network provider (Dept. of Health and Human Services). Giant Pharmacy will be present at the on-campus flu shot clinic to provide vaccination to students who would like to use their health insurance.  You must schedule your appointment with the pharmacy to use your health insurance, do not schedule with Student Health.

Students should contact their health insurance provider to ensure coverage and that the pharmacy is considered in-network before getting their flu shot at one of the on-campus clinics.  Student Health cannot guarantee coverage or payment by your insurance company.
