University Flu and COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

Getting vaccinated is a tool that keeps those around you, who might not be able to fight off the flu or COVID-19 safe from a potentially life-threatening infection. In this season, it’s important to think about others when it comes to the flu and COVID-19 vaccine. To ensure we do all that we can this year to stay safe and healthy, we are offering multiple days of flu and COVID-19 vaccine clinics.
