Information on Influenza
You feel terrible! Fever, chills, cough, runny nose. Is it the Flu? Could you get even sicker, and what serious problems should you watch for?
The links on this page will help answer some common questions about the flu, help you take care of yourself, and help you know when to come to SHP Medical Services.
For information related to COVID-19, please review the Montana State University COVID-19 Information page.
The 2023-24 seasonal quadrivalent influenza vaccine is now available as an intramuscular injection at SHP Medical Services.
SHP has 4 scheduled Flu mass vaccination clinics for Fall 2023: 9/27, 10/10, and 10/26 will be 10 am - 3 pm at walk-up stations outside the Swingle Student Health building; 11/14 will be in SUB 235 from 10 am - 3 pm.
You may also call 406-994-2311 to schedule a flu vaccine appointment or request a flu shot when you are in our clinic for other medical reasons. Should we run out, you may also obtain immunizations at many local pharmacies (find one through vaccines.gov), clinics, and from the Gallatin City-County Health Department.
Most insurances (including the MSU BCBS plan) fully cover the cost of influenza immunization, but if you must pay for it out of pocket the cost is $30.
