Resources for Flu Shots for SMU Employees

During the COVID-19 pandemic getting your flu shot is more important than ever, especially if you are in a high risk group. The influenza vaccine will not prevent the coronavirus, but reducing the overall burden of respiratory illnesses is vital to protect vulnerable populations at risk for severe illness, the healthcare system, and other critical infrastructure.

The higher dose flu shot for seniors is now available for SMU employees and family members at the drive-thru Urgent Care tent where COVID-19 testing is offered. Faculty and staff members and their dependents can get the regular flu vaccine and the senior flu shot for people age 65+ at Expressway Tower on SMU’s East campus.

Please schedule an appointment in advance here.  You can avoid a pre-visit medical consultation by typing in “flu shot” under the field titled: “Reason for visit.” Vaccinations are administered from the comfort of your own vehicle and a drive-in tent is available in case of inclement weather.

Free shots are also available with SMU insurance at Walgreens, Kroger, Costco, CVS and CVS-Target pharmacies.
