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

For employees and eligible dependents who are enrolled in one of the University's Health Plans, please bring your insurance card. For all others, the cost of the vaccination is $25.

 

At this time all campus flu clinics have concluded. If you are still in need of a flu shot you may call the MU Medical Clinic at 414-288-7184 to schedule an appointment. Walk-Ins are NOT available.

If you are feeling ill, have symptoms or do not pass your covidcheq on the day of your appointment please call to cancel. 

Symptoms: fever (greater than 100.0 F), cough, shortness of breath of difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.

 


 

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.
