With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing through the summer and the fall flu season around the corner, Lipscomb University has made plans to ensure that every university and Lipscomb Academy employee and all university students have access to free flu vaccine administered on campus this fall.
Bison Flu Fest, coordinated by Lipscomb’s chapter of the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists and University Health Services, will set up a two-day flu clinic in the Allen Arena concourse on Sept. 23 and 24. The goal is to serve more than 3,500 people.
On Saturday, Sept, 26, there will be a drive-through flu clinic for employees who are working remotely.
“Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing the spread of respiratory illnesses, like flu, this fall and winter is more important than ever,” states the website for the Centers for Disease Control. “CDC has worked with vaccine manufacturers to have extra flu vaccine available this flu season. CDC recommends getting a flu vaccination in September or October but getting vaccinated anytime during the flu season can help protect you.”
