MIT administers a record number of flu shots at the 2012 walk-in clinics


After a record-breaking 3,200 patients lined up to receive shots on Sept. 28, MIT Medical administered another 2,200 vaccines during its clinic on Oct. 11.

“This year was tremendously successful,” says Deborah Friscino, director of operations at MIT Medical. “We immunized approximately 10 percent more patients this year than at last year’s record-breaking clinics.” The event was open to MIT students, staff, and retirees. 

In addition, MIT Medical continues to immunize patients when they come for their routine appointments. In particular, the OB/GYN and pediatric clinicians vaccinate many of their patients when they come in for checkups. In total, more than 8,500 shots have already been administered on campus.

However, flu season is hardly over and MIT Medical is continuing to provide flu shots for those who still need one. Through Nov. 9, members of the MIT community can come to Building E23 to receive their shot on Monday through Thursday. Check the table below for hours.

  • Mondays: 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon) and 1 to 4 p.m.
