(Jan. 13, 2010)--UTSA Student Health Services will offer H1N1 vaccination clinics in January at the Main and Downtown campuses so students, faculty and staff can get the shots before the second wave of flu season. The H1N1 flu shot is free of charge for registered UTSA students and $5 for UTSA employees.
Individuals must present their UTSACard and are encouraged to wear a loose-fitting top. Faculty and staff can pay by check or bring $5 in exact change. Debit and credit cards will not be accepted.
"We received 1,900 doses of vaccine from the Texas Department of State Health Services over the holiday break, and if we need more, we will order it," said Elizabeth Stanczak, UTSA executive director of health and counseling services. "We want to encourage everyone, especially those in the high-risk group of young adults 25 years or less, to get their H1N1 flu shot now before the semester gets started full-swing with the potential for classes and study time to be impacted."
Individuals must be free of fever to receive the H1N1 shot and should plan for a 30-minute wait in the clinic line. Those who are pregnant should get the H1N1 shot though their primary care provider rather than at a UTSA clinic.
News posted at www.flu.gov, a comprehensive Web site with information from the Department of Health and Human Services and other federal agencies, indicates the threat of H1N1 flu is still very serious. The cost of an H1N1 flu shot ranges from $15 to $30 at grocery stores, pharmacies or doctor's offices.
For more information, call 210-458-4142 (Main Campus) or 210-458-2930 (Downtown Campus), or visit the UTSA Student Health Services Web site.
Those who cannot attend the special H1N1 vaccination clinics, also can receive the shot on a walk-in basis at UTSA Student Health Services on the Main and Downtown campuses.
