Announcements: 

Flu Shots Available - $25 

The best way to protect against influenza (flu) is to get a flu vaccine every flu season. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious illness, hospitalization, or even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. The first and most important step in protecting against flu is to get a flu vaccine each season. CDC recommends everyone six months and older get an annual flu vaccine. 


Shots available on a first-come basis until supplies run out. Stop by during student health center hours or make an appointment by calling: (310) 287-4478.
