H1N1 Vaccines to be available for HSC faculty, staff and students this Friday

The University of Florida’s Student Health Care Center Occupational Medicine clinic will hold an outreach clinic Friday to offer H1N1 flu vaccine at no cost to all health-care workers, faculty, staff and students in UF’s Health Science Center.

The clinic is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Founders Gallery at the Health Science Center. Vaccines will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Vaccines also will be available at UF’s Student Health Care Center Occupational Medicine clinic, in Room D2-49 of the Dental Building. Call 352-392-0627 to make sure vaccines are still available before going to the clinic. Employees must present their ID badges to receive shots.

Please note: Shands HealthCare employees working in UF’s health system hospitals and clinics are receiving instructions from Shands Occupational Health Services about H1N1 vaccination. Additional H1N1 vaccine doses continue to be delivered to the Alachua County Health Department each week. Shands Occupational Health Services will announce expanded employee eligibility for the vaccine as doses become available and per directive of the health department.
