Flu Shots

 

Getting a flu vaccine during the COVID-19 pandemic is more important than ever. Experts believe that the flu might make a person more susceptible to COVID and develop serious disease. They are also concerned about people who develop the flu, and thinking they have COVID-19, seek medical care that could inadvertently expose them to COVID-19. Lastly, getting a flu vaccine will help conserve potentially scarce health care resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. The influenza page provides more information about the requirement, documentation of the vaccine and where you can get a flu shot.

 

As of August 2020, all students in Massachusetts who attend even one class in person, must receive the 2020 – 2021 influenza vaccination. 

 

There are a few different ways you can get a flu shot.

 

UHCS is offering flu immunization clinics during the month of October. Appointments are required in advance. UHCS flu clinics will be held in the tent behind Willis Hall.

 

UHCS flu clinics:

      • Wednesday 10/28 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

November on-campus flu clinic information coming soon! 

 

Flu shots also available at UHCS by appointment only. Call UHCS at 617-373-2772 to schedule.

The University has developed a comprehensive website dedicated to COVID-19. We encourage you to review this website with questions regarding the latest updates, information and FAQs.
