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 2022-23 seasonal quadrivalent influenza vaccine is now available as an intramuscular injection at SHP Medical Services.
SHP has flu vaccine clinics scheduled as walk-up clinics on 9/27, 10/12, and 10/20 in tents outside of the Swingle health building (East edge of SUB), and on 11/09 in SUB 233. You may come to any of these clinics between 10 a.m. - 3 p.m..
If you are unable to attend any of the walk-up clinics, please call 406-994-2311 to schedule a flu vaccine appointment, or ask for 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, 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.
