Flu season officially has begun, but Duquesne medical plan subscribers can protect themselves for free—and without an appointment.
A walk-in flu shot clinic will be hosted by the Center for Pharmacy Care on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 1 to 5 p.m. in Room 101A of the Bayer Learning Center.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), everyone ages 6 months and older should get an annual flu vaccine.
Members of the University community who cannot attend the clinic may participate in the center’s next flu shot clinic on Thursday, Nov. 29, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Room 103 of the Bayer Learning Center.
In addition to the flu vaccine, the Center for Pharmacy Care offers University plan members the following free immunizations:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- TDaP (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis).
These immunizations are available by appointment Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Center for Pharmacy Care in the Muldoon Building at 1000 Fifth Ave. Call 412.396.2155 to schedule an appointment and for more information.
Mission Accomplished: Living the Spiritan Mission
The University mission informs and enlivens every aspect of University life, but when engaged in daily tasks it’s easy to forget how the mission can manifest itself in the most commonplace ways. Resident Director Adam Wasilko reminds the campus community that living the Spiritan mission is not only achieved through grand gestures, but also through the smallest of everyday actions.
