The University Health Center has shortened its flu shot clinic schedule due to a national shortage of the seasonal influenza vaccine.

The last flu shot clinic is noon to 2 p.m., Oct. 15 at the University Health Center. All other flu shot clinics have been canceled.

According to Health Center officials, manufacturers reduced production on the regular seasonal influenza vaccine in order to produce the H1N1 influenza vaccine.

Health Center officials are recommending faculty, staff and students seek other sources for the seasonal influenza vaccine. Individuals unable to get vaccinated should remember the most important protection against the flu is hand washing, covering a cough and staying home if ill.
