Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) has received a new shipment of H1N1 influenza vaccine and will distribute it at a clinic open to all members of the Harvard community under age 65.
The clinic will be held Jan. 19 from noon to 3 p.m. in Monks Library at HUHS in the Holyoke Center.
Flu season is not over, and HUHS would like to remind students, faculty, and staff to remain vigilant about monitoring and combating flulike illnesses. The best way to stay healthy is to practice good hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and water or hand sanitizer, such as Purell. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or use the crook of your arm when you cough or sneeze, to protect others. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth to avoid spreading infection.
Public health officials have indicated that HUHS will receive additional shipments of vaccine at regular intervals, so additional clinics could be scheduled shortly.
