Fight the Flu!

Protect yourself and the community from the flu.

The U.S. is experiencing a high level of flu activity. Influenza has cold-like symptoms with abrupt onset of fever, chills & muscle aches. Seek medical attention if you have a high-risk condition or you feel your symptoms are significant or worsening.

Below you’ll find some helpful information to avoid getting and spreading the flu.

Take Precautions and Get a Flu Shot!

Where to get a flu shot in Laramie:

  • Albany County Public Health
  • Area pharmacies (Ridleys, Safeway, Walgreens, Walmart)
  • Urgent care clinics (Grand Avenue Urgent Care, Stitches Urgent Care)

Please note: If you have the student insurance associated with the university, you will need a referral from the Student Health Service so the insurance will cover the cost of the flu shot. Please stop by the Student Health Service during business hours prior to getting a flu shot to obtain the referral.

Avoid the flu:

  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently 
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
  • Avoid contact with sick people
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated
  • Get enough sleep, eat a balanced diet, and stay hydrated
