Get a shot, not the flu. And a free tank top, too.

UF students can reduce their chances of suffering from the flu and expand their wardrobe at the same time. Those who stop by the front lawn of the Student Health Care Center (Infirmary Building, 280 Fletcher Drive) on Friday, Sept. 18, will receive a no-cost flu shot, a free “SHOTS” tank top (limited to first 1,250 students) and other great giveaways.

Students must present their Gator1 card as well as an active insurance card in order to obtain a shot. Visit for more information.

The Flu Shot Kickoff is the SHCC’s most successful event of the year. The center vaccinated 1,287 people at the 2014 event, and hopes to hit the 1,500-mark this year.

After Sept. 18, students can obtain no-cost flu shots at the SHCC Infirmary Building or the SHCC at Shands on a walk-in basis. Outreach clinics around campus will run throughout September and October.

For more information, please contact Catherine A. Seemann at or call 352-273-4551. The SHCC provides health services to more than 22,000 students each year. To learn more, please visit
