Triton College Hosts Fall Flu Shot Clinic

Triton College will be hosting their annual fall flu shot clinic on Monday, Sept. 19, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., in the Student Center Cafeteria (B Building). Vaccines are provided by Jewel-Osco pharmacies and pharmacy reps will be administering the shots. Per Jewel-Osco, flu vaccines are free for those with a PPO and $44 for those with an HMO or individuals who are uninsured. 

Laura Hill, R.N., Triton College’s director of Health Services, said the flu shots are available to anyone in the Triton community. Walk-ins are welcome, with no appointments necessary. 

Hill noted that Triton is hosting the flu shot clinic to promote a healthy environment on campus and in our community. According to the CDC, receiving a flu shot is the most effective way to protect yourself and others from becoming sick with the flu. Although contracting the flu is still possible, symptoms are milder when vaccinated. 

“When you protect yourself, you are also protecting members of the community who cannot get vaccinated, like those who may be too young,” said Hill. “It’s also important to stay home if you are sick to stop the spread of germs and viruses.” 

Other vaccines available at this clinic include the COVID-19 vaccine, shingles and pneumonia shots.
