Getting Flu Shots on Campus

The UHS 2016 Flu Shot Campaign Kicks Off on 9/27

Join the 10,000 UT students, faculty, and staff who get their flu shot each year as part of the annual UHS Flu Shot Campaign. To reduce barriers to getting a flu shot, the campaign will be taken to sites across campus in September and October. Link below to the complete campaign schedule and information on charges, insurance, and payment methods.

UHS is administering the quadrivalent influenza vaccine. It contains no preservatives (thimerosol). UHS is not administering the high-dose influenza vaccine designed specifically for people age 65 and older.

Getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone gets a flu shot every year, unless there are medical reasons they shouldn't.

The flu shot won't give you the flu. UHS administers the inactivated virus flu vaccine. The viruses in inactivated vaccine have been killed, so you can't get the flu from the shot

What to bring to a clinic to get your shot. A UT ID card must be presented to get a flu shot. Bring your health insurance card or complete insurance information, if you are insured. If you are on a parent's/guardian's insurance policy, know who the policy holder is and their birthdate. Health insurance is not required to get a flu shot.

Flu shots for UT faculty and staff made possible by support from the Office of the President and the UT Office of Employee Benefits Living Well program.
