Cal Poly Campus Health and Wellbeing hosted a flu shot “pop-up” at Robert E. Kennedy Library to administer free flu vaccinations to Cal Poly students Thursday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Annual flu vaccinations are recommended before the end of October, as the flu tends to spread more rapidly during peak months, from December to February. Health Services will offer vaccinations through November, but might extend the program depending on the severity of the flu season, according to Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Health and Wellbeing Tina Hadaway-Mellis.

For students interested in receiving a vaccination, but could not attend the pop-up clinic, Campus Health and Wellbeing will offer vaccinations during regular nursing hours Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8-11 a.m. and 2:30-4 p.m. and Wednesday from 9-11 a.m. and 2:30-4 p.m.
