Flu Shot Clinic for Our Students, Families and Staff Members

Flu and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. While it’s not possible to say what will happen, it’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter.

A flu vaccine this season can help reduce the burden on our healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and save medical resources for care of COVID-19 patients. Please click on the electronic flyer and questionnaire below for more info. The flu shot clinic is provided by Southwest Health System and will be held on Thursday, Oct. 8th, 2020.
