University health services offer additional flu clinic on November 30


Penn State University Health Services offers students another opportunity to get a flu shot with a internal clinic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday November 30.

The clinic will be housed at the Student Health Center on Bigler Road. Shots are available by appointment only and can be scheduled via myUHS.

Students are encouraged to upload their health insurance information to myUHS and complete a handful of forms before their appointment. Your Penn State ID will also be required at the time of your shot.

“The flu shot is safe, effective and generally well covered by insurance,” said UHS Acting Medical Director Rebecca Simcik. “Most flu medications only improve symptoms for a day, so people can still feel very sick despite taking flu medications. The flu shot is your best line of defense.

Penn State said 179 cases of influenza A were confirmed at University Park between Oct. 28 and Nov. 17. The strain on campus, A H3N3, was added to the vaccine administered by UHS ahead of this year’s flu season.

The Nov. 30 clinic will be the fifth of the year at Penn State. This is the first clinic to take place in-house, the previous four having taken place at the HUB.
