It’s time to get your flu shot

It’s that time of year again — time to get your seasonal flu vaccine.

And this year, the vaccine is required for all students and employees on both the Danforth and Medical campuses who engage in patient care or work in buildings where patient care is provided or clinical research occurs.

Washington University School of Medicine students can receive free flu shots on a walk-in basis from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at the School of Medicine’s Student Health Service, Room 3420 of the East Building, 4525 Scott Ave.

School of Medicine employees can receive a shot at no charge at one of several scheduled clinics.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months and older receive a flu vaccine annually.
