Flu Shots Still Available


Flu shots are still available for the Tech community at the Arkansas Tech University Health and Wellness Center.

Any student, faculty or staff member may make an appointment to receive a shot at the Arkansas Tech Health and Wellness Center, which is located in Dean Hall 126.  To make an appointment, call 479-968-0329.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates each year in the United States 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu, and the CDC says a flu shot is one of the best ways to protect against the flu.  Read additional CDC suggestions to protect against the flu.

According to the CDC, the “flu vaccine protects against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season,” and this year’s flu vaccine protects against three new strains of the flu.
