Influenza

Influenza Vaccine Information

The 2013-14 Seasonal Influenza Vaccine is available at UHCS. We invite students to stop by UHCS Tuesday or Thursday 5:00-8:00pm, or Saturday 12:00-4:00pm to get vaccinated. The vaccine is FREE to all students.

Prevention

Prevention remains the simplest and strongest measure to combat the spread of the influenza virus. Public health officials stress the importance of:

  • Vaccination
  • Hand washing (video)
  • Cough etiquette
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
  • Self-isolation - in dorm room or home - when ill for at least 24 hours after one’s fever is gone (except to seek medical care)

Please visit our Forms page for detailed information on Cough etiquette and Cold, Flu, Bronchitis... What's the Difference?.

For Faculty/Staff

Faculty and staff may seek flu vaccines through Boston Public Health Commission Clinics or their own clinician.
