Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the FAST Center is now offering same day telehealth and in-person appointments only, in order to increase the availability of appointments for those who are ill and need immediate care and to safely accommodate and offer proper socially distancing for the increased volume of patients being seen by our healthcare team. Advanced appointments are no longer being offered until further notice. We appreciate your understanding and patience. Please call 702-895-0630 to make an appointment.
Flu shots are available at the FAST Center by appointment only for faculty, staff, and dependents (12 years of age and older). The flu shot is covered by both the CDHP-PPO and HMO with no out of pocket cost. For those without insurance, the cost for the flu shot is $35. Please wear short sleeves and bring your ID and insurance card with you. Call 702-895-0630 to schedule an appointment or if you have questions.

The Student Wellness Center (SWC) at UNLV continues to actively work with the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) to monitor and address the COVID-19 situation through guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are following all local, state and federal guidance. Please refer to the UNLV COVID-19 webpage for regular campus community updates and additional information and resources related to COVID-19.
UNLV Support Team
The UNLV Support Team is available to assist students who are experiencing distressing circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic and other situations.
All members of the UNLV community, family, and friends can play an invaluable role in helping students who are in distress. Your expression of interest, concern, and compassion is an important factor toward a student seeking the assistance they need. The Office of Student Conduct (OSC), Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Student Health Center (SHC), Disability Resource Center (DRC), University Police Services and administrators stand ready to assist you. We hope these services will help you to identify a potentially difficult situation and provide you with specific ideas and resources when you encounter a student in distress.
It is important to note that the university does not expect you to assume the role of counselor, therapist, or police officer. For those responsibilities, UNLV has trained professionals who are ready to assist you with students in distress.
