Mass immunization clinic to be held Dec. 10
A second mass immunization clinic will be held on our campus
Thursday, December 10. Both seasonal and H1N1 influenza vaccines
will be available. The doors of the Yellow Entrance of the Convocation
Center will open at 9 a.m. This clinic is a walk-in clinic,
and participants will enter
and exit the clinic from the Yellow Entrance of the Convocation Center. The
clinic doors, open at 9 a.m., will remain open until 4 p.m., or
until vaccine supplies are exhausted. Wheelchairs will be available
for those who need them. Wear clothing that allows easy access to
vaccination sites in the upper arms. Stay tuned to radio station KFIN, 107.9 FM, which will be broadcasting live from the Convocation
Center, to help estimate the time needed for vaccination.
Plentiful parking at the
Convocation Center should ensure few problems with traffic, but
to aid traffic flow, use
Caraway Road and
University Loop (East and West) to enter campus on Thursday. Please
avoid Stadium Blvd. and Aggie Road.
This clinic provides the best venue for receiving
both the seasonal flu vaccine and the H1N1 vaccine, since most local
providers have neither.
