Western New Mexico University students, faculty and staff as well as members of the public will have the opportunity to receive their annual flu shot on campus this Saturday, as the WNMU School of Nursing is partnering with Walgreens to help ensure the continued health of the Mustang community.
“While we’ve worked to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus in our campus community, it’s important that we also take steps to mitigate the spread of the flu virus. Although flu shots are in short supply, we’ve been able to acquire a limited number and hope those who live and work on campus in particular take advantage of this free clinic,” said WNMU Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Isaac Brundage.
On Saturday, November 7, shots will be administered from the WNMU School of Nursing building near the intersection of College Avenue and E Street.
Students may walk in to receive their immunizations between 10 a.m. and noon. Faculty, staff and members of the public may walk in to receive a shot between noon and 2 p.m.
Two hundred flu shots are available on Saturday, and all will be distributed for at no cost to the recipients.
