Mass Flu Clinics have ended for the 2012-2013 winter season. To schedule an appointment for a flu shot with a nurse at Boynton Health Service, please call the numbers listed below:
Unfortunately, health care providers cannot provide treatment for most cases of the flu. Often, simple home remedies can ease uncomfortable flu symptoms. If you have flu symptoms, please stay home to care for yourself and prevent spreading the flu to others.
Please read more about symptoms and treatment of the flu on our Flu and Cold Health Information page.
University of Minnesota flu vaccinations are available to University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff (and their dependents). All must be 18 years of age or older. There is no out-of-pocket cost. For more information, check out our Flu FAQ or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The nurse will screen you before administering the vaccine to ensure you receive the appropriate vaccine.
The nasal-spray flu vaccine—a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses that do not cause the flu (sometimes called LAIV for "live attenuated influenza vaccine" or FluMist®). 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 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. There are two types of injectable vaccine, one that is given in the muscle and one that is given just beneath the skin. Both types of vaccine are available at our vaccination clinics.
