SMU urges flu shots and other preventive measures

SMU health officials remind students, faculty and staff to take precautions against the flu and help prevent its spread by getting a flu shot.

Potentially severe flu season

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, cases of influenza are expected to increase across the country. Because flu can spread by contact with people who are ill, it is recommended that if you did not get a flu shot last fall, you should do so at the SMU Health Center or at a local pharmacy, clinic or physician’s office.

National data indicate that this year’s vaccine may be somewhat less effective than in previous years, but getting vaccinated continues to offer the best protection against the flu, according to the CDC.

Where to obtain a flu shot

Flu shots are available at no cost to SMU faculty, staff and students, while supplies last, at the SMU Health Center, 3014 Daniel Avenue, 214-768-2141. No appointment is needed; bring your SMU ID to the Health Center.

In case of a health emergency, students should call 911.

The Health Center has resumed normal operating hours, with flu shots and other services available from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
