Flu Shots

Annual on-campus flu shots were offered by the DeKalb County Health Department, NIU School of Nursing and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The flu shot is paid for by the employee's state health insurance provider for only NIU employees and retirees. Employees who are dependents, or employees who opted out of the state insurance, dependents, spouses or partners who are not NIU employees are charged a fee for their flu shot.
