Clinics set to help WMU community dodge the flu

Oct. 3, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Staff members in the Sindecuse Health Center are gearing up to provide influenza vaccinations on campus to students, faculty, staff, emeriti and retirees as well as their eligible family members.

Getting vaccinated is a simple and cost effective way of avoiding the flu. Members of the WMU community can get their flu shots at any of three upcoming outreach clinics or by visiting 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. 15, on the second floor of the Student Recreation Center; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21, in Rooms 157-58 of the Bernhard Center; and from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, in Room 3250 of Sindecuse.

The Oct. 30 clinic is particularly targeted toward retirees and emeriti. Meningitis vaccinations, which are recommended for students who live in close quarters, will be available at all three clinics.

Flu shots cost $12 and meningitis shots $77. 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.
