Free flu vaccines will become available to NAU employees and their spouses, as well as retirees and their spouses, in mid to late October, said Beth Applebee, director of Fronske Health Center.

NAU students with Fronske’s gold plan or United Healthcare Student Insurance can also receive the vaccine for free.

NAU employees’ children over 18, Sodexho employees, ROTC employees and all other NAU students can receive the vaccine for $20.

Fronske will announce dates, times and locations of flu clinics after vaccines have been received.

The vaccines are being funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Office of Employee Assistance and Wellness.
