Flu Vaccine

The University of Memphis Student Health Center highly recommends everyone get vaccinated to protect themselves and those around them against influenza.  The immunization takes about 10 days for immunity to develop, so the sooner you are immunized the better. Check with your doctor or another health care professional if you have questions about which vaccine you should get.

For Fall 2021, Flu shots will be available on the following Wednesdays listed below in the UC Atrium from 11am to 2pm. You must have your insruance card to get the flu shot.
