Getting a Flu Shot on Campus – Students ONLY

Students who missed the fall 2019 UHS Flu Shot Campaign, during which 12,654 students, faculty, and staff were immunized, still have a chance to get a flu shot on campus.

The influenza vaccine administered at UHS is a quadrivalent vaccine that protects against four strains of the flu. It does not contain preservatives (thimerosal). It contains an inactivated virus, which means the virus has been killed and does not cause the flu.

UHS will provide flu shots in the Allergy/Immunization/Travel Clinic to students only by appointment starting Tuesday, 10/22. UT faculty and staff should visit a pharmacy that administers the vaccine or contact their healthcare provider.

Students can schedule an appointment online:

  1. Log in to the MyUHS Patient Portal.
  2. Complete all “prompt” questions.
  3. Check “Allergy/Immunization” when asked the department in which you want to schedule an appointment.
  4. Check “Flu Vaccine Only” when ask the type of appointment you want to schedule.

If you do not find an appointment time that works for you, call 512-475-8301 to schedule by phone.
