Get your flu shot: this year
it's a matter of life or death
Breds, this is the most important time in our lives to get a flu shot. 

So far, 1,200 Kentuckians have lost their lives to COVID-19. If we don’t vaccinate to protect ourselves and each other, it will be so many more. 

During any regular year, the flu can be deadly. This year, the chances of lethal implications from the flu increase. Let’s say you or someone you know catches the flu. Your immune system will be compromised, making it harder for your body to fight off infection. Now let’s say you also contract COVID-19. Even if you’ve recovered from the flu, your body, already weakened from the flu, is fighting an uphill battle against potentially deadly consequences. 

Also, like COVID-19, protecting yourself against the flu with a vaccine is also protecting others. If you don’t get the flu, you’re protecting those you come in contact from getting the flu. Your friends, family, professors and classmates will be thankful. 

We can all agree: no one wants to endure COVID-19 and the flu in the same season. So, let’s protect your future and the future of those around you. Get vaccinated, for free, Tuesday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. until noon. You’ll be protected from the flu and help stop the spread. 

In addition to getting vaccinated, mask up, wash your hands often, sanitize high-touch areas and practice social distancing of at least six feet.
Next COVID-19 testing date is Oct. 13; free flu shots available
The next COVID-19 testing date for the campus community is Tuesday, Oct. 13. Flu shots administered by CVS will be available for free from 10 a.m. until noon. Wild Health will administer COVID-19 tests from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Help stop the spread by getting testing and vaccinated this fall.
