Influenza is a contagious illness that can be very severe and even life- threatening. The best prevention is to receive the flu vaccine this fall. The University Health Center will be holding flu clinics for the University community from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Pilot House on Tuesday, September 30 and Wednesday, October 1. A third clinic will be held on Friday October 3 in Fields and Schoenfeldt Hall from 3 to 6 p.m. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to join in on keeping our campus healthy. Cost is $20 (cash, check, or student account). Please note: Faculty and staff who are covered by Kaiser insurance will have an opportunity to receive a free flu vaccine sponsored by HR on October 14, 2014.
