UNT Influenza Vaccine Information

Flu Vaccinations at the SHWC for Fall 2020

 

The Student Health and Wellness Center is providing free flu vaccinations to students, as long as supplies last. Flu vaccinations are free to students currently enrolled in classes. No appointment is necessary, but students have to check-in at the Student Health and Wellness Center on the second floor of Chestnut Hall to get vaccinated.

Flu vaccinations are available:

Monday-Thursday 9 am to 11:30 am and 2 pm to 4:30 pm
Friday 9:30 am to 11:30 am and 2 pm to 4:30 pm

Students who are not currently sick and are seeing an SHWC provider can also request to get their flu vaccination while at the Clinic for their appointment. Students who are sick should consult with their medical provider if they can get a flu vaccination or if they need to wait before getting vaccinated.

UNT faculty and staff who are not enrolled in classes may get a flu vaccination for $22. Cash, check, and credit cards are accepted in the clinic.

Ways to Prevent Getting the Flu

  1. Get your flu vaccination. Studies have shown that getting your annual flu vaccination can reduce your chances of being hospitalized from flu and possibly reduce the severity of the symptoms of the flu virus. Getting vaccinated also provides protection for others you might be in contact with, such as infants, the elderly, or others who might be at higher risk for having serious complications from flu infections.
     
  2. Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
     
  3. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue, napkin, or other disposable item, if available, or cough/sneeze into your elbow to avoid spreading germs. If you do cough or sneeze into your hands, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner. Here is a display for examples.
     
  4. Avoid sick people as much as possible. People infected with the flu may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to seven days after becoming sick. If you or a family member is sick, they should stay home until at least 24 hours after a fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities (such as groceries or medications).
     
  5. Clean and disinfect services and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu. If you use your computer, phone, or tablet while sick, make sure to check the manufacturer's website for recommended methods for disinfecting your device. Devices with screen protectors might also have additional options for cleaning agents that won't damage your device but please refer to the screen protector manufacturer's website for recommendations.
