Vaccination for the Flu: At A Clinic Near You

Flu Shot

Although the continued warm temperatures have not exactly alluded to a change in season, the fact that classes begin tomorrow lets us know that Fall is officially here. Unfortunately, this also means that nasty virus we know as the flu is upon us as well. The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccination every year. We’re fortunate here at UCI in that this resource is made widely accessible to students, staff and faculty. The Student Health Center (http://www.shc.uci.edu/index.aspx) is offering several options for their walk-in flu clinics this season. Please see below for the schedule and location:

  • October 6 Monday 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • October 17 Friday 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • October 27 Monday 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • November 10 Monday 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • November 19 Wednesday 10:00am to 4:00pm

The cost of the flu vaccination is only $25. Students enrolled in the UC Student Health Insurance Plan pay nothing.

Can’t make it to the clinic on campus? Most pharmacies including CVS, Walgreens, and Costco also offer walk-in flu shots. Or visit your primary care physician for the vaccine.
