5th Annual Vaccination Day at the HSHSL!

It’s time again for the HSHSL and School of Pharmacy Flu Clinic. As always, vaccines are by appointment only for UMB campus employees and students. The 1-day clinic will be held on Thursday, Oct. 20 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in the Weise Gallery on the first floor of the Library.

This year we have expanded our flu clinic offerings to include COVID-19 and Pneumonia vaccines. COVID-19 vaccinations will include first, second, and booster dosages. If signing up for a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccination or boosters please remember to bring your COVID-19 vaccination card. Also note that Pneumonia vaccinations may include a co-pay for most insurances. This requires early submission of your insurance information to Walgreens to calculate your co-pay. If you sign up for a Pneumonia vaccination, you will be contacted by vaccination day organizers for more information via email.

To schedule an appointment please click HERE.  A mask, insurance card and a photo ID are required at the time of service. Patients have the opportunity to sign up for one or two vaccines, but more than two vaccinations cannot be provided in one appointment.

If you have any questions please contact Anna-Marie Epps, aepps@hshsl.umaryland.edu or Tara Wink, twink@hshsl.umaryland.edu
