Today: Flu Shot Clinic

Flu shots will be available at DSU again this year. Rite Aid of Hellertown will conduct Flu Shot Clinics:

  • Friday, October 20 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Student Journey to Wellness Fair

Those enrolled in Highmark Blue Shield through DeSales University will receive the shot at no charge, however, you must bring your insurance card along with you to receive the shot. Anyone not enrolled in the University-sponsored health plan can still receive the shot by providing their insurance card, and Rite Aid will submit directly for payment. Those individuals may or may not incur costs. We have negotiated a special cash price of $27.00 for the Trivalent and $32.00 for the Quad flu shots.

You may contact your health care provider directly to discuss, or call Rite Aid Pharmacy at 610.838.7371.
