H1N1 Vaccine Available

The H1N1 vaccine will be available at Student Health Services on Friday (November 20). Student Health will administer the vaccine to faculty, staff and students who are considered high risk.

The high-risk priority groups include:

 *Pregnant women;

 *People 24 years of age and younger with health issues (asthma, diabetes, cancer, blood disorders, chronic lung disease, heart disease, kidney disorders, liver disorders, neurological disorders, neuromuscular disorders, and weakened immune systems);

 *People who live or care for children younger than 6 months.

A limited supply of vaccine is available. Shots will be given from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. at Student Health Services, located on the south side of Pioneer Hall.

Faculty, staff and students who are not at high risk but who are interested in getting the H1N1 vaccine can contact Student Health (465.2375) on Friday afternoon and check on availability. Employees and students are asked to be respectful of those considered to be high risk so they are first to receive the vaccine.

There is no charge for the vaccine.
