Annual Point of Dispensing (POD) on Tuesday, October 16th from 8am-12pm in Emerson Suites for A Free Flu Vaccination!

On Tuesday, October 16th from 8:00am through 12:00pm in Emerson Suites, Ithaca College will be holding their annual Point of Dispensing (POD) for all faculty, staff, and students to receive a free flu vaccination.

The POD is an important part of the Ithaca College emergency preparedness plan, and tests our ability to deliver potentially lifesaving medication quickly and efficiently during an emergency or disaster incident that may pose a threat to public health. This is a very convenient opportunity for all Ithaca College community members to receive a free flu shot in a minimal amount of time.

***Please Note: High dose flu shots are not administered at the POD. Anyone with special concerns, staff, faculty, and retirees, should discuss with their personal physician what vaccine is most appropriate for them.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Katie Sack at or (607) 274-1208. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.

After registration, we will still be tabling to help people fill out absentee ballot request forms. However, first you must register, so don’t waste any time and come out and register!

However, we understand that not everyone who wants to register or request an absentee ballot can be there during the noon hour, so there is another option! Just email me,, and I will send you the appropriate form for whatever state you plan to vote in. Political engagement is so critical, and we hope you all come to register!
