(Feb. 16, 2011)--UTSA Student Health Services has lowered the price of flu shots. The cost is now $3 for UTSA students and $5 for UTSA faculty and staff members. The supply is limited, so take advantage of the deal soon.

This year's vaccine is a combination of the seasonal flu and H1N1.

"We have seen a drastic increase of influenza cases over the last few weeks," said Beth Wichman, M.D., Student Health Services. "We expect to see more cases this month, especially since cooler weather is keeping us indoors. This increases the exposure risk for susceptible individuals."

Student Health Services accepts payment by UTSACard (with balance), MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Visa, cash or check. For identification, bring your UTSACard.

For more information, call the UTSA Main Campus clinic at 210-458-4142 or the UTSA Downtown Campus clinic at 210-458-2930, or visit the UTSA Student Health Services website.


Tips for protecting against the flu
(from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you're sick with flu-like symptoms, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone. The fever should be gone without the use of fever-reducing medications.
  • While sick, stay away from others.
  • Avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
