H1N1 vaccination still available

Submitted by on January 15, 2010 – 9:42 am2 Comments

It’s not too late to vaccinate for the H1N1 flu. Students, faculty and staff can schedule an appointment for a free H1N1 vaccine by calling Health Services at 559-5458 for an appointment. Although the H1N1 pandemic has retreated from the headlines, this flu season is far from over. Flu is unpredictable, and the H1N1 virus spreads in waves quickly among college students.

327 H1N1 vaccines were given to Hampshire College students, faculty, and staff last semester and there is enough vaccine now available for everyone to be vaccinated. People with asthma and other chronic health conditions are at particular high risk for prolonged illness or complications and should get a flu vaccine as soon as possible.
