Campus flu shot events completed; walk-in flu shots to be available at PUSH

November 5, 2010

Today's flu shot event concludes the scheduled seasonal flu shot events provided by Maxim Health Systems on the West Lafayette campus. Beginning Monday (Nov. 8), Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH) will provide seasonal flu shots based on vaccine availability on a walk-in basis.

The Urgent Care Center in the basement of PUSH will have flu shots available 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. There may be a wait time. Bring your PUID to PUSH.
     
All Purdue health plans cover the seasonal flu vaccine for employees and covered dependents. Employees may see their health care provider to obtain a seasonal flu shot for themselves or their child.

This year's seasonal flu shot contains the H1N1 vaccine, so only one shot will be needed.
