Students can receive their flu vaccine at the Student Health Center this month for a small fee of $10 by Flex, cash or check.
“Students also have the option to pay for the flu vaccine with your credit card or debit card through our online immunization store,” said Lynette A. Lewis, Administrator/Asst. Director for Administration Auxiliary Services at the Student Health Center.
The flu vaccine will protect you from not only the common flu but from H1N1, H3N2, and influenza B viruses as well.
To ensure that all students, faculty and staff have an opportunity to receive a flu vaccination the Student Health Center is allowing the campus to receive a shot without the inconvenience of making an appointment until Oct. 8 between the times of 8 -10 a.m. or later at 1 -3 p.m. in the Patient Education Room.
VSU ID is required to receive a shot.
Vaccinations will also be available at the 8th Annual Benefits and Wellness Fair on Thursday, Oct. 31 in the Student Union. In addition, “we also will be coming around campus with the ‘roving cart’ as we have in past years,” Lewis said.
Schedule an appointment with the Student Health Center. Call the appointment line at 229-219-3200, or visit the office Monday-Thursday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
