UW Student Health Service Has Flu Shots for Students

September 22, 2016

The University of Wyoming Student Health Service again will offer seasonal flu shots for students this fall.

Students can get a flu shot at the Student Health Service without an appointment. Shots will be given weekdays from 8-11:30 a.m. and 1-4:30 p.m. This shot will protect against seasonal flu, including protection against H1N1 influenza, says Joanne Steane, UW Student Health Service director.

Cost for the flu shot is $29, and students can pay with cash, check or billed to a student’s account. If students have the UW-sponsored student insurance, Student Health Service will bill the insurance company for the flu shot’s cost. Students will receive a billing statement to submit to other insurance agencies.

Steane notes the following information about receiving a flu shot:

-- This service is offered to students who are eligible to use the Student Health Service, which includes all full-time students and those part-time students who purchased the optional student fee package.

-- Anyone who wants to decrease the risk of contracting influenza should get vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone receive a flu shot.

“If you get a flu shot, you will be protected against this illness that causes significant fever, muscle pain, cough and sore throat, and can lead to pneumonia and other severe complications,” Steane says.

-- When receiving a flu shot, it is recommended that students wear a short-sleeved shirt. Students will need to wait 20 minutes after receiving the immunization to make certain he or she has no reaction.

-- Students are requested to read the following information before going to the clinic:
