Reasons to get the flu shot

Are you a Health Sciences student?
Student Health puts on clinics just for you.  Going through Student Health will ensure your vaccination is officially on your academic record.  

Don’t let the flu ruin your plans this year. Protect yourself by getting a flu shot.
If you get the flu you might miss out on what’s important to you – school, work, social events. You could be sick for over a week, and that’s no fun for anyone. 

The flu shot is safe, and it works – it’s the best way to avoid getting sick with the flu, and prevent passing it on
Even if the vaccine doesn’t match the strain of flu going around, it provides some protection and is still the best way to protect yourself against the virus. By getting a flu shot, not only do you protect yourself, but you also protect those around you too. You can be contagious for up to seven days even if you don’t have symptoms. 

No matter how healthy you are, anyone can get the flu
Between 10-20% of Canadians will get the flu this year – that’s millions of people! The flu spreads is especially rapid on university campuses because we work, study and socialize so closely. No one is superman so it pays to protect yourself.

Not a UBC staff, faculty or student?
The Pharmacists Clinic at the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences (Vancouver Campus) has flu shots available for eligible BC residents. This service is for members of the public and others on and around campus who aren’t receiving a flu shot through the central UBC program.
