Flu Clinic

Wednesday, September 13, 10 am to 2 pm, Alumni Green, MT

Thursday, September 28, 10 am to 2pm, at the Wellness Fair, Great Room, Kaplan Hall, NBG

The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. While there are many different flu viruses, a flu vaccine protects against the viruses that research suggests will be most common. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. (Source: CDC.gov) Cash only, no debit or credit cards. Most insurances accepted. Please bring your insurance card.
