SMU Students Should Consider Getting Flu Shots ASAP
By Laura C. Murphy/ Pony Post Blog
As the fall semester picks up and temperatures begin to cool down,students should keep their health in mind and remember to get a flu shot.
Many students have already come down with a cold, or even the flu, as a result of living in close quarters with one another.
This year the Dallas County Health Department received flu vaccines much earlier than usual, indicating a change in how North Texas fights the flu.
To find the flu vaccine in your community, use the Flu Vaccine Locator service on the Texas Department of State Health Services’ website.
SMU students should also be on the look out for campus wide e-mails from the Memorial Health Center with dates and times for flu shot clinics, or students can call for a nurse visit at 214-768-2143.
This year the Health Center offers both the new needleless shot and the regular needle shot.
Flu shots at the Health Center cost $25 and students may charge their SMU account.
It doesn’t matter where you choose to go for the vaccine, as long as you get one.
