The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) say everyone
6 months and older should be vaccinated against flu.
Learn about flu, when to call your provider, how to care for yourself when you're sick and why vaccination's so important.
Students and other UHS patients:
Walk-in flu vaccinations are available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – noon and 1 – 4 p.m. at UHS' public health office, on the first floor of the health center.
You can also make an appointment to be vaccinated; call (413) 577-5101. If you already have an appointment with a UHS provider, you can be vaccinated at the same time – just ask!
Vaccinations will be billed to your health insurance; remember to bring your plan’s ID card with you.
Both injected and inhaled forms of the flu vaccine are available.
If UHS is not your primary care provider:
See your regular healthcare provider for a vaccination, attend a community clinic or stop by one of the many retailers offering flu vaccines.
