Published: October 1, 2009

During October, Student Health Services on campus is offering regular seasonal flu vaccinations to the CSULB community through three separate clinics in Ballroom “B” in the University Student Union.

Please note, these are regular seasonal flu vaccinations only, not vaccinations for the H1N1 flu, also known as swine flu.

Upcoming clinics are set for Thursday, Oct. 1, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; Tuesday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; and on Thursday, Oct. 15, from 1-5 p.m. No appointment is necessary and the cost to receive a vaccination is $10 per person. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.

“The flu season is upon us, and while we are hearing a lot about H1N1 and swine flu, strains of seasonal influenza are also circulating,” noted Dr. Michael Carbuto, director of student health services and chief of the medical staff at CSULB. “The L.A. County Department of Public Health is urging everyone to be vaccinated for seasonal flu.”
