(Oct. 2, 2013) -- Flu shots are available now for UTSA students, faculty and staff by appointment only at UTSA Student Health Services on the Main and Downtown campuses. Additionally, students can make an appointment for a free dental screening.

The cost for a flu shot is $10 for students and $15 for faculty and staff. For students covered under student health insurance purchased through Academic HealthPlans, the flu vaccination is covered with no copay.

To make an appointment:

  • Main Campus Clinic, Recreation and Wellness Center Suite 1.500, 210-458-4142
  • Downtown Campus Clinic, Buena Vista Street Building Room 1.308, 210-458-2930

Payment can be made by UTSACard (with a balance, Main Campus clinic only), MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Visa, cash or check. Bring your UTSACard. MasterCard, Discover and American Express incur a small transaction charge.

Free dental screenings for UTSA students are available by appointment at the Main Campus clinic in Recreation and Wellness Center Suite 1.806. The screenings are by appointment only between 1:30 and 4 p.m., October 3, 4, 11, 17, 18, 25 and 31. To schedule an appointment or for more information, call 210-458-4142.

UT Health Science Center San Antonio Dental School faculty and students will conduct the screenings at no charge. At the screening, teeth will not be cleaned and cavities will not be filled. The benefits of dental screenings are to prevent and detect infections, tooth decay, periodontal disease, receding gums and oral cancer and provide oral health education and referrals for free or low-cost dental care.

For the dental screening, a dental professional will:

  • Examine your mouth, gums and teeth
  • Look for signs of infection, cavities, periodontal disease, receding gums and oral cancer
  • If problems are identified, the dental professional will follow up with you to make an appointment for care or will refer you to a dentist.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
