Piper Promotes: Flu Shots, November 29 at the Tang Center

Is there nothing worse than missing science because you’re sick?

The Tang Center at UC Berkeley is having a Flu Clinic to provide influenza vaccinations on Thursday, November 29, 2012 from noon-5:30 pm. The service is open to the campus and community, no appointment is necessary, and drop-ins are welcome. Flu shots are free to students with UC SHIP health insurance (what grad students have) or $25 for the community.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine every year. The vaccine takes about two weeks to build antibodies and protect an individual against the flu. Flu shots now will protect against the peak of flu activity, generally occurring in January and February. Perhaps most awesomely, it’s a chance to see evolution in action!
