September 30, 2016The annual University of Alabama flu shot campaign, an effort by the University to protect students, faculty and staff from the flu, kicked off Sept. 7. Flu shots will be provided during the months of September, October and November at locations across campus, including the Quad, University buildings and student residence halls. The shots are free and no insurance is required. The goal of the flu shot campaign, which is led by UA’s College of Community Health Sciences, is to make getting a flu shot as easy and convenient as possible. Last year, more than 8,000 vaccinations were given.
