University Health Services Offering Additional Flu Clinic November 30

Penn State’s University Health Services is providing students another opportunity to get their flu shot with an in-house clinic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, November 30.

The clinic will be hosted at the Student Health Center on Bigler Road. Shots are available by appointment only and can be scheduled through myUHS.

Students are encouraged to upload their health insurance information to myUHS and complete a handful of forms prior to their appointment. Your Penn State ID will also be required at the time of your shot.

“The flu vaccine is safe, effective and typically well covered by insurance,” interim UHS Medical Director Rebecca Simcik said. “Most medications for the flu only decrease symptoms by one day, so people can still feel quite sick despite taking flu medicine. The flu shot is your best line of defense.”

Penn State said 179 cases of Flu A were confirmed at University Park between October 28 and November 17. The strain present on campus, A H3N3, was added to the vaccine administered by UHS prior to this year’s flu season.

The November 30 clinic will be Penn State’s fifth of the year. This is the first clinic to be held in-house, as the previous four took place in the HUB.
