Clinic to provide free vaccination against flu

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit will hold a free flu vaccine clinic in the CAW Student Centre Commons from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today — Monday, Nov. 18.

Vaccinating against the influenza virus is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting sick this flu season, advises Student Health Services. The flu vaccine is safe and most reactions only consist of mild irritation at the injection site.

This clinic is particularly valuable to international and out-of-province students as it does not require an Ontario Health Card. Those unable to attend the flu clinic are encouraged to receive their vaccinations at any participating pharmacies including the CAW Student Centre Pharmacy, located on the student centre’s lower level.
