Flu Vaccine Shortage
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention list the following priority groups for vaccination this year:
— Children aged 6-23 months
Faculty and staff who need vaccinations will have to obtain the vaccine from their usual health care providers.
For students who need vaccination because they meet the medical criteria outlined by the CDC, the Student Health Center is making efforts to obtain a limited quantity of vaccine (either the intra-muscular “shot” or the Flumist nasal spray). At the present time, no vaccine is available in the clinic. If and when it does become available, Student Health Services will announce its availability and the procedures to obtain it.
Students with specific questions can call the Student Health Center at 202-319-5744.
