Influenza/Flu Vaccine Information

Forms and Vaccination Information

Billing Information

The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) covers the flu vaccine 100% with no copay.  

We can bill TRICARE Standard and the following EPO and PPO plans: Care First Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna and United Healthcare. If you do not have one of the listed insurance plans, please check your insurance company to verify your coverage (most insurance companies have a toll-free number located on the back of the card).

We can submit the bill to your insurance, upon request, if you present your insurance card prior to your appointment, though we can't guarantee that they will pay for the vaccine if we are not in the plan network.  If the claim is denied, you would receive a subsequent bill for the vaccine and administration.

Alana Yaksich 2020-2021 College/University National Flu Vaccination Challenge

Once again, The University of Maryland is proudly supporting the Alana Yaksich Foundation by participating in the National College/University Flu Vaccination Challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to raise awareness and increase vaccination rates among college students. The school with the highest number of self-reported flu vaccinations will be awarded the Alana Yaksich Memorial Trophy.

To help UMD support this cause and participate in the challenge, we ask that you fill out a short survey whenever and wherever you receive your vaccine.
