Flu Immunization 

Flu shots are available at the Student Health Centre for all UNB & STU students, faculty and staff!  No appointment necessary.

Cost:  $15 for students & $25 for staff and faculty.  Some people may qualify for free flu immunization.  
We can only except cash at the time of the injection.  Please be prepared to wait 20 minutes AFTER your injection.

Influenza virus or "the flu" is a common upper respiratory infection.  It often starts with a headache, body aches, chills and a cough or sore throat.  You may also develop a fever, loss of appetite, fatigue, runny nose, and sneezing.  Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may occur. 

The flu can lead to missed time from work or school.  It is very contagious, but also very preventable!
Getting a flu shot every year is one of the most effective ways to prevent catching the flu and spreading it to others!
See below for more information about the flu and flu prevention!

Have the FLU, a COLD, or maybe a STOMACH VIRUS?  

Did you know some viruses can live on surfaces anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days!
Here are a few tips to help prevent catching or spreading a cold, the flu, pertussis or a stomach virus:
  • WASH your hands with WARM & SOAPY water thoroughly and frequently.
  • Use hand sanitizer (60 to 90% alcohol based) when you do not have access to wash your hands.
  • If you are sick try to isolate yourself from others when possible to avoid spreading germs.
  • Cough and sneeze into the bend of your arm, not your hand, to prevent spreading germs to others.
  • Discard tissues into a waste basket.
  • Clean and disinfect regularly using household cleaners, areas that are touched frequently such as keyboards, doorknobs, sink water tap handles, phones, desktop surfaces, etc.
  • Get your flu shot, still available at the Student Health Centre.
  • Keep your system strong: eat healthy foods, be physically active, get enough sleep, practice stress management techniques and refrain from smoking.
