We regret to inform you that due to a national shortage in seasonal flu vaccine, we will need to cancel all student, staff and faculty flu shot clinics scheduled for 10/15/09 - 10/23/09. Although we ordered 1400 doses of the seasonal flu vaccine in March of this year, our two suppliers have not delivered sufficient vaccine to distribute to the campus. We regret the inconvenience this late cancellation notice causes you. Please note that both Costco and the Safeway pharmacy on Mission Street have seasonal flu vaccine available. You may also check with your private medical provider or on www.findaflushot.com for other off campus locations for seasonal flu vaccine.
