Join the Center for Campus Wellness in a celebration of wellness that is centered around you, the student!

Each year, the Center for Campus Wellness offers wellness opportunities beyond health education. Last year’s Wellness Fair sparked minds and created space to have dialogue around health, wellness, safety, and equity. This year we want to continue and expand that conversation through the lens of Center for Campus Wellness’ student leaders.

During Wellness Fair week, we turn to our ACES and Engagement Ambassadors to lead events centered around their areas of focus: sexual wellness, mental wellness, identities (masculinities), AOD (alcohol and other drug) harm reduction, and violence prevention. Our hope is that each event not only provides an opportunity for learning and engaging discussion, but also to connect with one another and build community.

Wellness Services & Resources

STI Testing

Regular testing is important to take care of your sexual wellbeing. Some STIs, if left untreated, may result in health complications, so it’s important to get tested regularly. We recommend people who have sex to get tested every 3-6 months, before having sex with a new partner, or after unprotected sex. Regular testing is a great way to care for the physical health of your body and that of your sexual partner(s). 

There are community services that provides testing for free or low-cost in addition to our free HIV testing and free STI Clinics!  

Utah AIDS Foundation is currently providing low-cost at-home testing for HIV. They are also providing free in-person testing by appointment.  

Planned Parenthood and other healthcare clinics provide testing for many different STIs. Talk to your doctor or call Planned Parenthood to make an appointment. You can also call your insurance (see the back of your insurance card for their phone number) to see how much the visit and tests will cost.  

Utah Department of Health also provides low-cost testing. See their website for tests available, cost, and clinic times.  

To learn more about STIs and why testing is important, see our HIV/STIs page.

Flu Shots

Getting your flu shot, this year more than any other, is incredibly important for your safety and that of your friends and family. There are many places you can get your flu shot for low-cost or free, as most insurance companies will cover the vaccine and co-pay entirely. Here’s a quick list:  Smith’s Marketplace: find a Smith’s pharmacy near you and schedule an appointment or walk-in to get your flu shot. 

  • Walgreens Pharmacy: find a pharmacy near you and schedule an appointment or walk-in to get your flu shot.  
  • Harmon’s Pharmacy: all Harmon’s (except Emigration) offer flu shots by appointment or walk-in.  
  • Student Health Center: flu shots are also available by appointment with the SHC. With no insurance, flu shots are $25. With the Student Health Insurance Plan, they are free.  
  • Salt Lake County Immunization Clinic: For flu shots.
    Many other grocery stores (like Walmart or Target), pharmacies (Rite Aid, CVS), and your doctor provide flu shots! Next time you go shopping, keep your eyes peeled for a pharmacy window or flu shot sign.

Mental Health Support

University Counseling Center (UCC) will provide depression screenings and other support at Wellness Fair's Tuesday event. We're also listing out current ways you can engage with UCC if you need them! Counseling services are free.

  • Not sure if you need support? Take a free and anonymous virtual screening. These brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a behavioral health professional.
