KALAMAZOO--Sindecuse Health Center at Western Michigan University is holding a flu vaccination clinic, which is open only to those members of the university community who fall into a high-risk category as defined by the Centers for Disease Control. The clinic is Tuesday, Oct. 19, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in room 157 of the Bernhard Center.
The Oct. 19 clinic is only for those WMU students, faculty, staff, emeriti, retirees and their eligible dependents who fall into a high-risk category, including:
For those people who do not fall into a high-risk category, and for children under 12 years of age, the primary care provider should be consulted for recommendations regarding receiving the flu vaccine.
Earlier this month, Sindecuse canceled influenza vaccination clinics at the request of the Kalamazoo County Human Services Department and the Centers for Disease Control, because of a nationwide shortage of vaccine.
