Get the shot, not the flu!

Flu shots are available from the main campus (Infirmary Building) and Health Science Center (Dental Tower, Room D2-49), as well as at Student Health Care Center outreach events across campus throughout the month of October. (Please note that flu shots available at the Health Science Center are by appointment only.) You can also receive your flu vaccine at the upcoming Benefits and Wellness Fair on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Champions Club at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. You must present both your Gator 1 and insurance card to obtain a flu shot at no out-of-pocket cost at any of these locations.

Flu vaccine can keep you from getting the flu, make flu symptoms less severe if you do get it and prevent you from spreading flu to your family, friends, colleagues and others. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get the flu vaccine every year, which includes protection against multiple strains.
