Flu Shots held on Campus
There will be flu shot clinics on campus at the University of Central Oklahoma for the next few weeks for students, faculty and staff.
People should get a flu vaccine before flu viruses begin spreading in your community since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop against the flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
The clinic this week hosted by the Student Nurse Association will be held at 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Nigh University ballrooms. To sign up for a time, click here.

The vaccine helps avoid catching the flu. If infected, the vaccine decreases the duration of the flu and lowers the severity, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine.
