The central campus Flu Shot Clinics will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 5 & Thursday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at SHAC Plaza. The free clinics will be held for anyone 18 years of age and up.
UNM’s Benefits & Employee Wellness encourages all employees, their spouses/domestic partners, dependent children, and students to take advantage of no-cost flu shots. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists the statistics and many pluses for getting a flu vaccine each year. Be sure to discuss with your doctor before proceeding to ensure that your health status warrants taking the flu vaccine. We ask that you follow COVID-19 safety measures when attending a flu shot clinic.
Remember, the flu vaccine prevents millions of illnesses and flu-related hospitalizations each year. The flu vaccine has been shown to reduce the risk of having to go to the doctor with flu by 40 percent to 60 percent, and flu shots protect you, your family, your co-workers, and your community!
If you are unable to make the flu shot clinics on campus, this link will help you find other clinics in and around Albuquerque. Do your part… roll up your sleeve and get your flu shot!
