2019-2020 Influenza Season

It's time to get your flu shot and not the Flu!

Injectable influenza vaccinations will be available to students, faculty and staff at several locations throughout campus. There is no charge for the vaccination for FULL-TIME undergraduate students and employees and dependents participating in the Marquette medical insurance plan. For employees and eligible dependents who are enrolled in one of the University's Health Plans, please bring your insurance card to the flu clinic. For all others, the cost of the vaccination is $25.

Thank you to the College of Nursing for their support of this project and the MU Human Resources department for providing this benefit to participating MU employees and their eligible dependents.

Visit one of the flu clinics across campus or call to make an appointment at the Marquette University Medical Clinic.

To lower your risk of getting or spreading the flu:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based cleaner, especially after you cough or sneeze.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your shirt sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Frequently clean your living quarters including surfaces such as doorknobs, refrigerator handles, computer keyboards, remote controls and countertops.
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are sick. Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.
  • Do not share cups or beverages.
  • Try to stay in good general health. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
  • If you do develop symptoms consistent with influenza, including fever, cough, sore throat and body aches, stay home from work, class and campus activities and minimize contact with others. You should stay home for at least 24 hours until after your fever is gone.
