Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) will conduct free high-risk flu vaccination clinics throughout the month of October. The clinics will be held for all high-risk individuals every Monday and Tuesday (noon-3 p.m.) at HUHS on the second floor of the Holyoke Center (Monks Library). Students must have their Harvard ID to receive the vaccination.
High-risk groups include pregnant women, individuals 50 or older, younger adults with chronic illnesses (such as diabetes and asthma), health care workers, individuals in contact with children younger than 6 months, and individuals in contact with those at high risk of the flu’s complications, such as individuals with AIDS.
Beginning Nov. 3, HUHS will open free flu vaccination clinics to the entire Harvard University community (not exclusively high-risk individuals). More information on the flu can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/.
