Because the UNO Health Center is an independent entity, the organization is not obligated to follow university reporting requirements for sexual misconduct.
If a student wishes to report sexual misconduct through the university, please see the university policy outlined in the Sexual Misconduct Procedures document available on the Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) website.
The UNO Health Center offers medical laboratory services for your convenience. Results are available in several business days. Common tests for students:
- Chlamydia and gonorrhea BC
- Rapid flu test
- Rapid strep test
- Urine culture
Nebraska Medicine-licensed radiologic technologists operate the Nebraska Medicine - UNO Health Center's state-of-the-art X-ray equipment. All X-rays are electronically transmitted to consulting radiologists for interpretation.
A referral from a medical provider is required. Special procedures such as fluoroscopy, CTs, MRIs, ultrasounds, and mammograms, are not performed at the Nebraska Medicine - UNO Health Center.
If your medical provider orders a special procedure, the radiology team will schedule an appointment for you at a local facility.
Flu shots are free for students. Students can get their flu shot one of two ways:
- Reserve a time to attend one of our student flu shot clinics. The Dodge campus clinics will be held in H&K, room 126, on Friday, Sept. 25, and Friday, Oct. 2, from noon to 4 p.m. The Scott campus clinic will be held in the Scott Conference Center on Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 12 to 4 P.M. Click here to reserve your time slot. You must pre-register to attend. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Make an appointment at the UNO Health Center. We offer flu shot appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays between 8 A.M. and 4 P.M. Call 402.554.2374 to schedule. Appointments are required, and walk-ins will not be accepted.
Bring a MavCARD and a completed flu shot form with you.
Parental permission is required for students who are 18 and younger to receive their flu shot. UNO Health Center staff can call a parent or guardian when you check in at the student flu shot clinic or the UNO Health Center. Alternatively, 18-year-olds may bring a completed Power of Attorney form with them to their appointment. If the student already has a Power of Attorney form on file at the UNO Health Center, there is no need to submit a duplicate form. Power of Attorney forms are not valid for 17-year-olds; we must call a parent or guardian for permission to give you a flu shot.

FAQ About the Flu
Will the flu shot protect me against COVID-19?
The flu shot does not protect against the coronavirus, but it does have many important health benefits. It can reduce your risk of the flu, which can help conserve potentially scarce health care resources. Learn more from the CDC.
What safety precautions are being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at student flu shot clinics?
- We moved our student flu shot clinics out of the UNO Health Center and to larger spaces (H&K gym and Scott Conference Center). We will allow up to 50% capacity in these spaces to allow us to follow infection control processes and to maintain physical distancing.
- Our staff is required to wear face coverings and other personal protective equipment to keep you and themselves safe.
- All student flu shot clinic attendees are required to reserve an appointment. This allows us to maintain control of the environment and correctly follow infection prevention guidelines.
- All student flu shot clinic attendees are required to wear a mask or face covering at our flu clinics. If you do not have an appropriate mask, we will provide one for you.
- All student flu shot clinic attendees will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the clinic area. People with symptoms will be asked to reschedule their appointments.
- Flu shot stations will be thoroughly disinfected after each patient.
- There will be a separate entrance and exit into the student flu shot clinic to maintain one-way foot traffic.
- Student flu shot clinic attendees are not allowed to bring guests to their flu shot appointments, with exceptions for interpreters and personal care attendants.
Where will the student flu shot clinics be located this year?
The Dodge campus clinics will be held in the H&K gym, room 126, on Friday, Sept. 25, and Friday, Oct. 2, from noon to 4 p.m. The Scott campus clinic will be held in the Scott Conference Center on Wednesday, Sept. 30, from noon to 4 p.m. These clinics are for students only.
Students, as well as faculty and staff, may schedule a flu shot appointment at the UNO Health Center for anytime on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Why should I get vaccinated?
Influenza is a common but serious disease. Getting the flu could not only impact your academic pursuits but in some cases lead to hospitalization and death. An annual flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and others. Check out these flu shot benefits from the CDC.
When should I get vaccinated?
The CDC recommends people get vaccinated in September or October. Getting vaccinated later is still beneficial, even into January or later. Keep in mind, the shot takes two weeks to be effective.
How do flu shots work?
The flu shot creates antibodies that protect you against infection. The quadrivalent flu shot offered at the UNO Health Center protects against four common flu viruses.
Why do I need a flu shot annually?
A flu shot is needed every season because the body’s immune response to the shot declines over time and needs an annual shot to provide proper protection. It’s also important because flu viruses constantly change, and the flu shot is updated accordingly each year.
Can the flu vaccine give me the flu?
No, a flu vaccine does not cause flu illness, but it can occasionally cause side effects such as a low-grade fever, aches and soreness or swelling where the shot was given. However, these effects are short-lasting and mild compared to the flu.
