If you still need to get your flu shots, there will be a second seasonal flu vaccine clinic in Parlor B of the Benson Center on Tuesday, Oct. 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The cost is $25, and you can pay with cash, check, or if you’re a student, you can charge it to your account. Talk with your health care provider about whether you should be vaccinated for seasonal flu.
If you are at a higher risk for flu complications from 2009 H1N1 flu, you should consider getting the H1N1 vaccine from your medical provider when it becomes available. For more detailed information about priority groups for vaccination, visit the CDC Web site.
At this point in time, Cowell Student Health Center will not be providing H1N1 vaccine to faculty and staff due to limited supply of the vaccine, but it will consider it in the future if supplies increase. Check Cowell’s Web site for updates on the H1N1 flu.
Santa Clara University’s human resources department will allow staff who have exhausted their sick leave to borrow up to five additional days during this academic year specifically for H1N1 flu-related absences.
