Physician assistant students joined the crew of School of Health Sciences students who are putting their education to use for the Penn College community this week, helping to administer flu shots in College Health Services. Nursing students are also taking shifts providing the vaccines, which are available through 4 p.m. Monday and from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. College Health Services, on the first floor of the Bush Campus Center, is providing the shots to Penn College students, employees and their spouses and dependents (9 years and older) at a cost of $15.
