Flu Shots at UHS – By Appointment Only

UT students, staff and faculty can get flu shots at UHS by appointment only.

Getting a flu shot this fall is as important as ever. It takes around two weeks from the time you receive the vaccine to develop protection. Get your shot to protect yourself and others during peak flu season. Getting vaccinated can help prevent flu from disrupting your classes, work and has been shown to reduce severity of illness in those who get vaccinated but still get sick.

If you have recently had COVID-19, you can get your flu shot as long as you are no longer in isolation or quarantine and your symptoms have resolved or are mild. You can get a flu shot if you have recently received or plan to receive a COVID-19 booster
