H1N1 vaccine arrives; clinic starts at 11 a.m. today

The University of St. Thomas Student Health Service has received its first allotment of H1N1 vaccine, and vaccinations will be offered today. The supply is limited and will be available to students who meet the following criteria.

• All students through age 24.
• Students ages 25 through 64 with a chronic medical condition that puts them at higher risk of medical complications from influenza.
• Pregnant women.

The Tommie Triage Trailer, located on the north campus between Brady and Morrison residence halls, will serve as the distribution site for vaccine administration. The H1N1 vaccine clinic will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, Monday, Nov. 30. A $10 administration fee will be charged, which can be billed to student accounts, insurance or paid at the time of administration.

Students who are ill today should not go to the Tommie Triage Trailer; students who are ill should instead call the Student Health Service, (651) 962-6750, to schedule an appointment.

A story will be posted in Tuesday's Bulletin Today regarding additional H1N1 vaccine clinics. Future clinics will depend on supply availability.
