Students & Colleagues,

Thank you for your patience as we slowly receive supplies of the H1N1 vaccine.  Just to give you an update, initially we received 100 doses of injectable H1N1 vaccine.  These doses were given to the highest risk students, faculty and staff on our campus.  We then received 300 doses of the Live Nasal Spray H1N1 vaccine which were given to students and other healthy individuals.  We have recently received another shipment of the live nasal H1N1 and will conduct another clinic, details follow:

Stern Center Lobby
Thursday, November 12th
9 am – 12 pm     2 pm – 4 pm

We expect to have an adequate supply.  Please keep in mind this live vaccine is for those individuals who are no older than 49 years and who do not have chronic medical conditions.  If you are in doubt about which vaccine you should get, please email me.

Additionally, we also received a limited supply of the H1N1 injectable vaccine which we are arranging to give to those at high risk for complications of this virus.  If you have not done so, please email to the following address, your name, contact phone # and your high risk condition H1N1highrisk@cofc.edu You will be contacted by a Student Health Service staff member as vaccine becomes available.

Special thanks to all our flu volunteers and the extraordinary staff at the Stern Center.  Thanks again for your patience as we make our way through this challenging semester.
