Fight Off Cold and Flu Season with Free Vaccines

September 21, 2022, 1:00 p.m. CDT

With the official start of fall tomorrow, Sept. 22, it's a good reminder for us all to take time to get a flu shot and a COVID-19 vaccine. Health experts say it is safe to receive both at once, but if you have concerns, check with your physician.

COVID Vaccines

COVID vaccines are still readily available within the community and at Student Health Services. Visit Student Health Services for information about who is eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines on campus or visit your local healthcare provider.

Flu Vaccines

Students can obtain a no-cost flu vaccine at Student Health Services or they can visit their local healthcare provider. Faculty and staff can receive their COVID-19 and flu vaccines at the October vaccine clinics. More information on the vaccine clinics will be shared in the coming weeks.

In addition to getting vaccinated, simple measures can go a long way in preventing infectious diseases. Always remember to wash your hands, cover your cough and stay home if you are sick.

If you are feeling sick and need a COVID-19 test, multiple locations on campus continue to offer PCR tests. Additionally, at-home rapid test kits are available at no charge to students, faculty and staff Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Student Health Services Pharmacy.
