    The society with the most positive (or least negative) points will win the day!

    Flu Shot Clinic

    UHS administers the quadrivalent influenza vaccine. It contains no preservatives (thimerosol). UHS does not administer the high-dose flu vaccine for people over age 65.

    Getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu. The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone gets a flu shot every year, unless medical reasons prevent it.

    The flu shot won't give you the flu. UHS administers the inactivated virus flu vaccine. Viruses in this vaccine have been killed, so you can't get the flu from the shot

    You must bring the following to a clinic to get a flu shot: 1. Your UT ID card or, if you are a retiree, proof that you’ve retired from UT. 2. Your health insurance card or complete insurance information, if you are insured. If on a parent’s/guardian’s insurance policy, you’ll need the policy holder’s birthdate. Insurance isn’t required for students to get the flu shot. 3. RETIREES ONLY: a driver’s license or other documentation showing your birthdate.
