Policies

Influenza Vaccination


All Weill Cornell Students are required to participate in our annual influenza vaccination program run in conjunction with New York–Presbyterian Hospital. Influenza vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, your colleagues and our patients from influenza disease.

Influenza vaccination will be offered free of charge to all students when available – usually in the fall. Vaccination begins as soon as vaccine is available and will continue through the end of the influenza season.

Students may receive the vaccine from other sources, such as rotation hospitals, other physicians, pharmacies or other public events. Students are advised to forward copies of any relevant immunization records to Student Health for inclusion in their medical record.

Students declining vaccination may be required to participate in an educational program and must complete a form declining vaccination.

Additional updates will be made to this page during the actual vaccination campaign.
