UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek is ready for flu season. Are you?
The university will offer flu shots to students, faculty and staff from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Carolyn P. Brown Memorial University Center ballroom. The flu clinic will be adjacent to the University Center’s voting location.
Shots will cost $20 and all proceeds will go to the Knoxville News Sentinel Empty Stocking Fund, which provides food and toys to needy families during the winter holidays. Sponsors include the UT Student Health Service, the UT College of Nursing, the Knoxville News Sentinel Charities and Knoxville-area physician Dr. Charlie Barnett.
This year’s shot protects against both the seasonal flu and H1N1. The shots will be available to all UT students, faculty, staff and immediate family members age 4 and older. The cost is payable by cash, personal check or major credit card.
