Health Center Flu Clinics Canceled


Contributed by Teresa Hradisky

The Hammond Health Center is canceling the rest of its scheduled flu vaccination clinics for this season in compliance with federal and state directives to redistribute all available vaccine for populations having the highest level of need.

Over the past two weeks we have been able to immunize over 100 IC staff, faculty and students at high risk of infection or complications, and we will retain a limited number of vaccine doses for individuals in the Ithaca College community who still require immunization.

If you are age 65 or older, have a chronic medical condition that you think might make you eligible for vaccination, are pregnant in the next few months, or are a healthcare worker with direct patient contact, please call 274-3177 to make an appointment for one of the remaining vaccinations.
