UWG to Offer Flu Vaccine

Friday, September 4, 2009

The University of West Georgia will provide seasonal flu vaccines for students, staff and faculty on Wednesday, Sept. 9 from 9:00 a.m.  – 7:00 p.m. at the main lobby of the Coliseum on the UWG campus.

The vaccine is free for students. Staff and faculty members must pay $15, with only cash or checks accepted and exact change required.

All vaccine recipients must present a student or staff identification card.

The vaccine will not be administered to anyone who is sick.

Please note that this vaccine is for the seasonal flu, not the H1N1 (swine flu) strain, a vaccine for which will be available later.

Health officials have encouraged people to plan to receive both vaccines this year.
