Free flu shots at BioSci

Students who haven’t had a flu shot yet this season can get one at a free clinic open to the general public on Monday, Oct. 27, at the BioSciences Complex.

The clinic will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. No appointments are necessary. The clinic will be run in partnership with Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington (KFL&A) Health Unit.

KFL&A’s website said seasonal influenza disease typically peaks in January or February. They encourage everyone to get vaccinated before the virus begins to spread, because it can take roughly two weeks for the vaccination to start developing antibodies to protect against influenza.

Flu shots are also available for students and faculty by appointment through Health, Counselling and Disability Services.
