H1N1 vaccinations: This time, faculty/staff

The Counseling and Health Center has received another 100 doses of the H1N1 vaccine. There’ll be a walk-in clinic later this week; this time the free shots will be available not only to students but also to faculty and staff who meet the increased-risk criteria, including:

• Anyone between ages 6 months and 24 years

• Pregnant women

• Persons who live with or provide care for infants age 6 months or younger (examples:  parents, siblings, daycare providers)

• Health-care and emergency medical services personnel who have direct contact with patients or infectious material

• All persons aged 25-64 who have underlying medical conditions that put them at higher risk for influenza-related complications. Examples of underlying medical conditions include, but are not limited to: diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, asthma or other chronic pulmonary disease; kidney, liver, blood or neurological disorders.

The vaccinations will be dispensed on a first-come, first-served basis until the vaccine is gone, between 2:30 and 4 p.m. this Thursday (Dec. 3) and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Friday (Dec. 4). Location is the Counseling and Health office, Room 1400 of the Student Services Building.
