Oct. 29 will be the last opportunity this month to get a flu vaccine either in Café Lab or Room 208 of Earl Shapiro Hall as part of a series of clinics offered by The University of Chicago Comer Health4Chicago’s team of healthcare providers.

Tdap and adolescent vaccinations will also be available in addition to the flu vaccine.
“They are saying on the news that it is going to be a pretty aggressive flu season,” school nurse Mary Toledo-Treviño said.

She encouraged people to get vaccinated as soon as possible, as it takes about two weeks after the vaccination before one is considered fully inoculated against all four strains of the flu.

Ms. Treviño said parents, siblings, caregivers and grandparents are all encouraged to come to the clinic to get their flu shot this season.
