Get your FLU vaccine as soon as possible; we are taking appointments at the SHU Student Health Services center now.
Student Health Services/Wellness department is once again coordinating with SHU HR department and many other campus divisions to provide our campus with an ANNUAL FALL Health Fair, introducing a variety of services for all. This year’s Health Fair is scheduled for Thursday October 13 in University Commons from 11am until 2pm. Watch for E-mail blasts in the upcoming week. Many community agencies are joining us for this event. Food, fun and freebies abound. Stop by and pick up some goodies. Warm yourself with some hot cider or nutritious soup. We will have something for everyone. Anyone can purchase their FLU vaccination for $20.00 at the Health Fair, and those doing so will be entered in a raffle to win a gift card from a local vendor.
Student Health Services is booming with business. Unfortunately, there are many germs out there gravitating towards the possibly overwhelmed student body. Late nights, poor eating, and stress make you an ideal host for germs and illness. The nurses and practioners are booked solid at this time of the year, and Fall 2011 is no exception. The staff is diagnosing and treating student illnesses with gusto. If you feel ill, call and make an appointment (203-371-7838) early in the day to ensure no delay in treatment. Remember that once filled, we will book you for next available, most likely an appointment on the next day’s schedule, or we may refer you to our collaborative service provider (ST. Vincent’s Urgent Care) center. We are here to serve and are doing everything possible to see all cases daily. Hours are Mondays through Fridays 9am-5pm with evening hours on Mondays and Tuesdays until 8pm.
