In addition to vaccinating the at-risk campus population, Montclair State University will be providing the H1N1 vaccine to family members of students and staff this week.
H1N1 flu is now widespread in New Jersey and approximately 200 cases of ILI (Influenza Like Illness) have occurred on campus.
The primary defense against H1N1 is vaccination. The University has administered over 2,000 doses of H1N1 flu vaccine and has additional vaccine available. We will continue to offer H1N1 flu shots to our campus membership and now will include family members of MSU students, faculty and staff that belong to one of the target groups. All target group family members including children age 6 months and older are eligible to receive a flu shot.
An H1N1 Flu Clinic will be held December 2, 2009, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the University Health Center in Blanton Hall for MSU students, faculty and staff and eligible family members. No appointment is necessary and the vaccine is free. Individuals under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
