KALAMAZOO -- Think you might need a shot in the arm to keep going strong this fall? The Sindecuse Health Center is ready to help.

Center staff members are gearing up to provide influenza vaccinations on campus to students, faculty, staff and emeriti as well as their eligible family members. They're also encouraging students who live in close quarters to consider getting vaccinated against meningitis.

Getting vaccinated is simple and cost effective. Members of the University can go to any of three upcoming outreach clinics or visit Sindecuse during walk-in hours: 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Thursdays.

The outreach clinics will take place from 3 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, on the second floor of the Student Recreation Center; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, in 213 Bernhard Center; and from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, in the Sindecuse Health Center.

Flu shots cost $10 and meningitis shots $70. The cost may be charged to an individual's University account or paid in cash or by personal check. Credit cards will not be accepted.
