H1N1 vaccines now available to all ASU students, employees
Arizona State University has received a supply of vaccines for the H1N1 virus (also known as swine flu). While supplies last, all ASU students, faculty and staff members may receive a vaccine at any of the four campus Health Centers (Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic, Tempe and West) during regular business hours. The vaccine is also available to the ASU community and the general public at the College of Nursing healthcare clinics. Locations and phone numbers for the clinics are available here: http://nursingandhealth.asu.edu/nmhc/contact.htm.
The availability of the vaccine to all members of the ASU community is effective immediately. For individuals wishing to obtain a vaccination at a location other than an ASU Health Center site, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health has announced that vaccinations will be available to the general population starting Saturday, Dec. 19.
Students, faculty and staff must show their ASU SunCard to receive a vaccine. There is a $10 fee for the vaccine for students. ABOR Aetna Student Health Insurance will cover the cost of the vaccination for those students. Benefit-eligible employees´ administration fee will be covered in the same manner as the seasonal flu vaccinations. People who have already had H1N1 flu that has been confirmed through testing do not need to get the vaccine.
