In the time you spend on your regular coffee break, you could get your free flu shot. And, with little to no wait times, there’s time for you to get a flu shot and a double-shot latte.
You can still make an appointment at Boynton Health Service to receive a flu shot. Call our appointment line to set-up an appointment: 612-625-3222.

The nurse will screen you before administering the vaccine to ensure you receive the appropriate vaccine.
The nasal-spray flu vaccine is a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses (sometimes called LAIV for "live attenuated influenza vaccine" or FluMist®). This vaccine does not cause the flu. LAIV (FluMist®) is approved for use in healthy* people who are 2 to 49 years old who are not pregnant. (*"Healthy" indicates persons who do not have an underlying medical condition that predisposes them to influenza complications.) The intranasal vaccine ("FluMist") is a quadrivalent, which means the vaccine will protect you from four different types of flu viruses.
The injectable flu shot is an inactivated vaccine (containing killed virus) that is given with a needle, usually in the upper arm. (Please wear attire that allows us to access your upper arm and shoulder.) The flu shot is approved for use in people older than 6 months. Healthy people and people with chronic medical conditions can get the shot. The injectable flu shot offered at the University of Minnesota flu vaccination clinics is a trivalent intramuscular vaccine that will protect you from three different types of flu viruses.
