Flu Shots and COVID-19 Boosters

Dear Kent State University Students, Faculty and Staff,

Before gathering for the holidays with friends and family, please protect yourself and your loved ones by getting up-to-date on your immunizations.

Bivalent booster shots have been formulated to provide additional protection against omicron variants of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends bivalent booster shots be given at least two months after completion of the COVID-19 vaccine series or any previous COVID-19 booster and at least 90 days after someone has had COVID-19.

Make an Appointment

Flu shots and COVID-19 boosters are available daily at DeWeese for all students, faculty, staff and their dependents, regardless of campus. COVID-19 vaccines and boosters and flu shots also are available through these links at a variety of state locations, many of which are more convenient for our regional campuses.

On the Kent Campus, register for a Flu shot or COVID-19 booster by visiting the DeWeese patient portal or by calling 330-672-2322. If using the online portal, you will be asked to register for a patient account first before you can schedule an appointment.

Visit DeWeese for more information on flu shot clinics or all other immunizations, including COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.

Test Before You Go

Don’t forget to take a COVID-19 test before heading home or visiting friends. COVID-19 test kits are available on all Kent State campuses. Immunization is our best offense for keeping our campus community healthy during the upcoming holiday season. Please get yours!

Sincerely,

Lisa Dannemiller, M.D.
