Walk-in flu shot clinic this Friday

MIT Medical wants to help you stay healthy this fall and winter with a walk-in flu-shot clinic this Friday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on the third floor of the Stratton Student Center (Building W20).

This clinic is open to:

  • All MIT students, employees, and retirees;
  • MIT Affiliate Health Plan subscribers and their enrolled family members (age 10+);
  • Family members (age 10+) covered by the MIT Traditional Health Plan;
  • Family members (age 10+) covered by the MIT Choice Plan who have primary care providers at MIT Medical.

Please bring your MIT ID card and insurance card.

Each year's active influenza strains are different, so to be protected, you need to get the 2012 shot — even if you got a flu shot last year. The MIT Medical website contains more information.

Community members have also asked for early notification about future flu clinic dates, so a new flu-clinic mailing list has been established. Sign up

For more information about how to protect yourself from influenza, visit MIT Flu Central. And check in at the MIT Medical homepage periodically, too, to find up-to-date health and medical information for the MIT community.
