Nursing, Medical Students Administer Flu Shots

(September 28, 2022) — Georgetown medical and nursing students worked side by side to deliver flu vaccines to their fellow Hoyas during two clinics offered on campus.

Students stood in queue at the Leavey Center throughout the day on Sept. 27 to get their free shot, offered by the Student Health Center and MedStar Health. For most adults, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends vaccination in September or October. So far, approximately 1,500 students have taken advantage of the free clinic.

A final flu vaccination clinic for students will be held Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
