Eager to get inoculated?

The University of Colorado will hold seasonal flu vaccine clinics over the next two weeks.

Next week’s clinics, which will take place Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 4 p.m. at the on-campus Wardenburg Health Center, are for high-risk students only. That means students who are pregnant or who have asthma, diabetes, compromised immune systems or other health concerns.

Clinics for all students – including high-risk and non-high risk students – will be held the following week, on Wednesday, Oct. 21 and Thursday, Oct. 22. from noon to 4 p.m. at the CU Book Store in the University Memorial Center.

No appointment is necessary. A flu shot costs $20 and is fully covered by the Student Gold Health Insurance Plan. Students without insurance can pay for the shot with cash or a check.

The swine flu vaccine is not yet available. When it is, Wardenburg will hold another series of free clinics.
