Flu Shots

Prevent the Spread of FLU at WashU

  1. Get the flu vaccine each year.
  2. Stop the spread of germs by covering your coughs and sneezes, washing your hands, and staying home if you are sick.
  3. Take antiviral drugs if they are prescribed for you.

Learn from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the flu and how to prevent it.

If you are unable to attend one of the on-campus immunization events, additional options are available for participants in the Washington University health plans. Visit your network primary care physician, other health professional or get your flu shot from one of these contracted network providers (PDF).
