Flu Shots Run Out Fast
The Health Center quickly ran out of their 1400 seasonal flu vaccines, canceling Wednesday’s flu shot clinic. On Monday, hundreds of students lined up in the Fireside Lounge to get their jab.
“Well I think there’s a lot of paranoia out there,” said senior Kristen Riggs. She gets a shot every year, this year’s no different. “I’m prone to getting sick, and anything to prevent that is, you know, good to go.”
The shots are for seasonal flu, and side effects are usually just a sore arm. No H1N1 flu shots are available yet, though the health center expects those in a few weeks.
But Alamance County received 200 doses of the H1n1 vaccine last week. This first shipment is reserved for medical workers, not the general public. They’re expecting more vaccines to come this week.
Elon will receive it’s own shipment of H1N1 vaccines from the state soon. The health center wants students to line up again in a few weeks for this new shot.
