Miami University's student health service (SHS) has scheduled more H1N1 flu vaccine clinics for students with Flu Mist, a nasal spray.
Students may come to the health services center from 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18, to receive the vaccine. Similar walk-in clinics will be held from 3-5 p.m. Dec. 2, 9 and 16 as long as the supply of vaccine lasts. SHS will not do a clinic on Wednesday, Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving.
Students need to bring their student IDs. Their student accounts will be charged a $10 fee.
Flu Mist is a nasal spray vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses that do not cause the flu. The Oxford campus has not yet received the injectable version of the vaccine.
All healthy Miami students between the ages of 17 and 24 are eligible for this vaccine. However, anyone who has a chronic illness, such as asthma, diabetes or sickle cell anemia or a lower immune response needs to receive the H1N1 flu injection, which we have not yet received.
