Attendance at our fall semester flu vaccines was a disappointment to say the least. Now that we are in the midst of the earliest and worst flu season in many years, if not decades, MANY still need to be vaccinated. EVERYONE IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO GET VACCINATED AS SOON AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN.
Some local medical providers still have vaccine, as do some local pharmacies. Please try to get one if you are able as soon as possible. Your local health department may also be able to help you find a vaccine if necessary.
For those of you STILL in need of vaccination we will be holding one last FINAL vaccination clinic at Student Health Service FOR ALL STUDENTS, FACULTY AND STAFF on:
Tuesday January 22, 2013 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Flu vaccines are recommended for EVERYONE yearly. Those with any chronic illnesses such as diabetes or lung disease are especially encouraged to get one yearly. Influenza hits our campus every year and you do not want to catch it! It will make you miss classes and feel terrible! The best way to protect yourself from it is to get vaccinated. Keeping your hands clean and covering your coughs also helps to reduce the spread of the flu and many other illnesses (colds, stomach "bugs", etc.). In addition, you CANNOT get the flu from the vaccine, so do not let that unfounded worry keep you from getting vaccinated.
We only have a limited number of doses left, and they will be given on a first come, first served basis.
All Clinics are held in the Student Health Service Office in B26 Van Hoesen Hall.
Cost is $10 for Students and $25 for Employees, cash or check is preferred.
