Free Shots Still Available to Students!

Students!  Did you miss your flu shot?  It's not too late.  Head over to the Medical Clinic (Human Services Building in the South Quad) on January 24 OR January 31 between the hours of 8:30am - 11:30am and 1:30pm - 4:30pm for a FREE vaccine.  No appointment necessary, just come on in!

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommend getting the flu vaccine to prevent against different flu viruses.  It's important to protect yourself and others as we get this semester started!

 

Free Flu Shot Clinic (Students Only) in the Fall Semesters

Influenza (commonly known as the flu) and colds are among the most common infections of the respiratory system. People often confuse the two, calling a bad cold the "flu" or vice versa. There are some key differences between these two unwelcome visitors even though they are both caused by viruses and are both likely to occur during the winter months. However, the information here is as useful in July as it is in January.

As a college student, you are even more likely to catch the flu! College students live in close quarters with their roommates, share bathrooms, and participate in social activities that make them more prone to catching the flu. A hangover and dehydration may also weaken your immune system making you even more susceptible.

Every year the EIU Health Service offers free flu vaccines to students. Stop by the Bridge Lounge of the MLK Union during the scheduled date in the fall semester!  

Help spread the word!  Below you may print your own poster or quarter flyers for the event!
