|Health Promotion Office announces flu vaccination opportunities|
If you haven’t had a chance to receive your seasonal or H1N1 flu vaccination, you still have several options available to protect yourself. Students, faculty and staff can also take advantage of seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccinations being offered by Grand Forks Public Health.
Anyone (6 months of age or older) interested in getting vaccinated may do so from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday–Friday, at the Grand Forks Public Health City County Building (151 S 4th St. Suite N 301). You can just walk in; no appointments are necessary. Those with BC/BS coverage are asked to present their insurance cards to cover the cost of the seasonal flu vaccination. The cost is $32 for those without coverage. If you have any questions, call Grand Forks Public Health at 787-8100.
Students can receive their H1N1 flu vaccination at Student Health Services. Call 777–4500, or go to www.undstudenthealth.com to make an appointment. Those with BC/BS insurance are asked to present their insurance cards to cover the cost of administration. Student Government will cover the cost of vaccine administration for students who are uninsured or underinsured. Student Health Services supply of seasonal flu vaccine has been exhausted. Other community options for H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccinations can be found on the ND Flu Clinic Locator at www.ndflu.com.
