The purpose of the flu vaccine is to minimize transmission of the influenza virus in the workplace by providing occupational protection to faculty and staff and to prevent transmission to other members of the NSU community. Annual influenza vaccination has been found to be both safe and effective in reducing the risk of influenza and health care-related transmission.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting a flu shot is more important this year than ever as we learn to live safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Preventing the flu is always important, but it is even more critical now, when so many of our health care resources are being used to treat patients with COVID-19. By reducing your chances of catching the flu and needing to seek medical attention for it, you are doing your part to conserve these already limited resources.  Also, if you get sick and must go to the doctor, your chances of being around someone with COVID-19 are much higher.

The flu vaccination is available to NSU faculty/staff/students as well as to general public.

Walk-ins are welcome; however, making an appointment is preferred. To make an appointment, call (954) 262-4550 for a vaccination appointment. The vaccination is administered at our Fort Lauderdale/Davie location at 3200 S. University Dr., Davie, FL 33328.
