On-Campus Vaccine Clinics

Our on-campus clinics provide access to your annual flu vaccination and a variety of other common vaccinations, including those for shingles, pneumonia, and diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (DTaP). To determine the vaccinations that are most suitable for your specific needs, we recommend having a discussion with your healthcare provider.

September 8, 2023

Dear Faculty and Staff,

Georgetown is collaborating with Safeway Pharmacy to offer vaccine clinics in September and October on the Hilltop and Law Center campuses and at the School of Continuing Studies and 2115 Wisconsin Avenue NW (full schedule below).

We strongly encourage you to get your annual influenza (flu) vaccine and the new COVID-19 vaccine, once it is available, at one of these upcoming clinics or at a pharmacy near you this fall.

Available Vaccines

At our on-campus clinics, you will be able to get your annual flu vaccination, including the high-dose flu vaccine designed for individuals 65 and older, and, as soon as it is available, the newest formulation of the COVID-19 vaccine. There is no need to space out the flu and COVID-19 vaccines if you are eligible for and planning on getting the latest COVID-19 dose.

You will also be able to get other common vaccinations, such as shingles; pneumonia; and diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (DTaP). Please talk to your health care provider to see which vaccinations are right for you.

Health Insurance Coverage

Please note that you will need to provide your health insurance information at this year’s vaccine clinics. Most health insurance plans cover seasonal flu and COVID-19 vaccines at no cost. Regardless of your insurance plan, flu and COVID-19 vaccines will be available at no cost to you at our on-campus clinics. However, you will be responsible for covering co-pays or costs associated with any vaccines other than flu or COVID-19.

For individuals covered under a Georgetown University-sponsored health plan, you can learn more about getting your vaccine on the following websites:
