Did Someone Say Shot?
STATESBORO, Ga. – Georgia Southern University’s Health Services, a division of Auxiliary Services, will host influenza vaccination clinics during the months of September through November. Early vaccinations are the single best way to prevent the flu this year.
Starting September 9, flu shot clinics will be hosted in various locations on campus to aid in the convenience of obtaining the vaccine. The Centennial Place residence hall, Health Services Center, and Russell Union are among the clinic locations. Health Services provides students, faculty and staff the opportunity to get flu vaccinations every year.
All patients should bring a valid insurance card and Eagle card upon visit. Students that have an in-network provider for health insurance may receive a vaccine at no cost. Flu vaccinations for students without health insurance, faculty, staff, and retirees of the university may receive a vaccine for $10.
According to the CDC, a flu vaccine is needed every year due to the body’s immune response from vaccination. Over time the immune system’s response begins to decline, and therefore a new vaccine is needed every year for optimal protection.
