It’s that time of the year again; flu season is upon us. Where are you going for your annual vaccination? You won’t have to go very far.

In addition to normal procedures at the Student Health Center, the Mobile Health Unit will be offering curbside flu shots.

The 38-foot medical bus has been bringing flu shots to campus quads for easier access to students.

The bus can be spotted uptown on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. To find its current location, follow @MHealthUnit on Twitter.

If you miss the bus, don’t worry, the Student Health Center will be vaccinating Tuesday from noon to 5 p.m. in the Shriver MPR, Nov. 9 from noon to 6 p.m in the Heritage Room at Shriver and Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Heritage Room. The cost is $5 for Miami employees, $10 for family members covered by Miami insurance plans and $20 for undergraduate and graduate students. Thimerosal-free flu shots and Flu Mist will also be available.

CVS Pharmacy offers flu shots all day; appointments are not necessary. Walk-ins are also welcome at Walgreens.
