IU Northwest offers free H1N1 vaccine to students, faculty and staff who are under age 25 or part of other high-risk groups

Campus access to vaccine will expand in December

The Indiana University Northwest Health and Wellness Clinic now has free doses of H1N1 vaccine for students, faculty and staff who fall into high-risk categories for the influenza strain. These groups include anyone under age 25, pregnant women, and those between the ages of 25 and 64 who are at high risk due to other chronic illnesses that increase their susceptibility to H1N1.

Inoculations for these priority groups begin the week of Nov. 23 and continue until Tuesday, Dec. 8. At that point, the free vaccinations will be opened up to any other faculty, staff or students who wish to receive them, for as long as supplies remain available. If demand for the priority groups is lower than expected, access to inoculation may be expanded prior to Dec. 8.

Regular hours for the Health and Wellness Center are: Tuesday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.; Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.; and Thursday from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. This week, however, the clinic will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 25, and Thursday, Nov. 26, due to the holiday week. The IU Northwest campus is closed on Thursday, Nov. 26, Friday, Nov. 27, Saturday, Nov. 28, and Sunday, Nov. 29, for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Health and Wellness Center will close for the semester break on Monday, Dec. 21, and will re-open for Spring Semester 2010 on Monday, Jan. 11. The clinic’s hours for the spring semester will be posted at http://www.iun.edu/~health4u/
