Influenza and COVID-19 vaccines

Iowa State is working with Hy-Vee to offer another vaccine clinic for employees and students at State Gym. We will share dates and additional information as soon as it’s available on the COVID-19 Vaccinations webpage, Inside Iowa State and other communication channels.

Thielen Student Health Center (TSHC) continues to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine/booster and the flu vaccine for students. They can schedule an appointment online or call 515-294-5801 and bring their ISUCard to the clinic.

If employees are unable to attend the vaccine clinic at State Gym, they are encouraged to contact their medical provider or search for availability.
