The Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy will host this fall’s second flu shot clinic at its annual PharmFest event on Thursday, Oct. 10, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Immunizations on Oct. 10 will cost $20 and will be administered in the Bennett Campus Center.
In Bison Square, student pharmacists will offer the free blood pressure checks and blood glucose screenings, a bone marrow registry sign-up, information on prescription drug abuse, samples of over the counter drugs and products and information on various student health care organizations.
There will be about 40 Lipscomb student pharmacists involved in the flu shot clinics. All Lipscomb student pharmacists are certified to give vaccines and many already work in retail pharmacies and have administered flu vaccines at on-campus clinics for the past three years.
The Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and prepares student pharmacists for work in community pharmacy, hospitals, specialty health care facilities and mental health facilities.
