Students line up to get shot

Flu clinics on the University of Windsor campus November 21 and 22 did a brisk business, administering the vaccine free to Ontario residents.

“Our numbers overall are up this year in comparison to previous years,” said Judi Wilson, health promotion nurse in Student Health Services.

She said the Windsor Essex County Health Unit offers the mobile clinics to make it more convenient for people to get vaccinated: “We try to go all around the community and the county and hit all the major areas.”

If you missed the campus clinics, you still have opportunities to get a free vaccination. The health unit will hold public clinics in Belle River on November 26 and in Amherstburg on November 27 before returning to Windsor on November 28 and 29.
