Did you know the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 6 months and older get an annual flu shot by the end of October? All ASU students (that have paid the Medical Services Fee) can come to the Campus Clinic and get a FREE Flu Shot.
Also, If you have Marketplace health insurance, your flu shot is free from a provider in your plan’s network. Here are 3 more reasons you should get the flu shot.
- It helps keep your family and friends healthy: In addition to keeping you healthy, getting vaccinated yourself helps protect people around you, especially those who are more prone to getting sick, like babies, children, and older people.
- It’s a small step to better health and well-being: By protecting yourself from the flu, you may have fewer doctor’s visits and miss less work or school.
- Nobody likes being sick: The flu shot can help protect against unpleasant side effects of the flu, including fever, chills, and fatigue.
