Fight the Flu and the Pandemic

Some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, so getting a flu shot this year is more important than ever. It will reduce your risk from the flu while conserving health care resources to fight the pandemic.

All UMB students and employees can schedule an appointment for a flu shot, including employees who are teleworking and students who are learning remotely.

UMaryland Immediate Care (UMIC) clinics will be offered starting Sept. 14 at 635 W. Lexington St. A full list of dates and times are available in the registration form. Time slots are not appointments, but instead a range of time when you can arrive for your flu shot.

This year, UMIC will offer asymptomatic COVID-19 testing during the flu shot visit.

Alternatively, those working and learning from home can visit the Maryland Department of Health’s Get Vaccinated page for a full list of Maryland flu shot locations.

Register for a spot at the UMIC flu shot clinic by visiting the UMIC flu shot page, or use the form below.
