There are many flu viruses, and they are constantly changing. The composition of U.S. flu vaccines is reviewed annually and updated to match circulating flu viruses. Flu vaccines protect against the three or four viruses that research suggests will be most common.
All through October, flu shots will be available to benefit eligible students at McKinley Health Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. All you need is your i-card!
For the complete list of flu shot clinic locations, see the Flu Clinic Events Calendar. Don't wait until it's too late; get your flu shot today!

In partnership with the Sierra Club Wastewater Residuals Team, Presby Hall and the McKinley Foundation will host this compelling documentary and a panel discussion on Tuesday, October 22, from 6-9 p.m.
In this classic detective story, investigative filmmaker Cullen Hoback travels to West Virginia to uncover the truth behind a massive chemical spill that left 300,000 people without drinking water for months. But when Hoback discovers an obscene collusion between chemical corporations and the highest levels of government, the investigation spirals in a terrifying direction, and we learn the frightening truth about what lies upstream of us all.
Come for free pizza and locally grown organic popcorn! This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6 p.m., and free parking is available at the parking garage across the street after 5 p.m.
After the film, stick around to hear stories from individuals who were in West Virginia during the disaster and to discuss our local serious water threats and how we might deal with similar chemical or coal ash contamination.
