The University Health Center and the College of Pharmacy have kicked off their annual #FluGA campaign, with many ways to access the flu shot.
A flu shot is free for those who bring a UGA ID and current insurance card. (There are exceptions with Kaiser participants, who should check with their plan.) A flu shot will cost $50 for those who are uninsured.
Flu shots are available to UGA students, student spouses, current faculty/staff and their dependents (13 years and older) and retired faculty.
All UGA community members can get a flu shot at a #FluGA Mobile Clinic on campus. The schedule of mobile clinic locations is at https://bit.ly/2pRwBLO. The mobile clinic is a partnership between the UHC Pharmacy and the College of Pharmacy to make flu shots more accessible to the UGA community.
Additionally, UGA students can schedule a flu shot through their UHC patient portal.
Flu shots also are available at walk-in clinics at the UHC Allergy/Travel Clinic from Oct. 1-Nov. 1 on Wednesdays from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. and Fridays from 1-4 p.m. This year, the Allergy/Travel Clinic is once again including Flublok, an egg-free vaccine.
Interested departments or organizations can request to have the mobile flu clinic come to their office.
The University Health Center website (uhs.uga.edu/healthtopics/influenza) also includes frequently asked questions about seasonal flu and links to additional information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
