In a collaboration between Penn College’s Nursing Department and College Health Services, bachelor-degree students in Terri A. Stone’s Fundamentals of Nursing class gave flu shots Thursday in the Bush Campus Center. Health Services will continue to provide the vaccinations to faculty, staff, students, dependents and spouses from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday and 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. The cost of the flu vaccine is $15, payable by cash, check (payable to Penn College) or credit card. According to Health Services, the only medical reason why someone should not receive the flu vaccine is an allergy to eggs, neomycin or polymixin, or a previous life-threatening reaction to an influenza vaccine.
