Wichita State Student Health Services offers flu shots, COVID-19 vaccines

Flu shots and COVID-19 vaccines are now available at Wichita State’s Student Health Services

Eligibility requirements:

  • Ages 18 and over
  • Enrolled WSU students
  • Current WSU employees
  • Must be at least 10 days past a positive COVID test or COVID-19/influenza-like symptoms.

The CDC recommends that those 6 months and older should receive an updated COVID-19 vaccine and seasonal flu shot.

SHS is open Monday through Friday at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments are required to administer vaccinations. 

To make an appointment, log-in to myShockerHealth patient portal or call (316) 978-4792. Allow 15 minutes to sit and wait after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination.

At the appointment, bring your health insurance card to see if your insurance will cover the cost. If Student Health Services is deemed out of network with your insurance, you may have out-of-pocket costs.

Student Health Services cannot file Medicaid, Medicare or Tricare.

Without insurance, the flu vaccine costs $25, and the COVID-19 booster costs $125. There is also an administration fee for the vaccinations. 

Other COVID-19 vaccination locations in Wichita can be found on vaccines.gov/search/. If you are uninsured or underinsured, check the “Bridge Access Program Participants” to view locations that provide no-cost COVID-19 vaccines to adults without health insurance and adults whose insurance does not cover the costs.
