Postponement of Seasonal Flu Shots

It seems that the communications about the postponement of the seasonal flu shots on the downtown LSUHSC campus did not reach everyone. We, like others, have not received our full order of seasonal flu vaccine. We’re told that the FDA has to clear the lots before they can be shipped, and that it is expected to happen over the next couple of weeks. When we have an adequate supply of vaccine in hand, we will reschedule seasonal flu shots on our downtown campus. Thank you for your patience as we navigate the uncharted waters of the 2009 flu season.

Through the Pandemic Influenza Planning Committee, we are putting plans into place that involve both the seasonal and H1N1 flu. 
  • Seasonal flu shots will be available on September 23, 24 and 25 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., School of Nursing, 1900 Gravier Street, 5th floor IV lab.
    • Cost: Students --  Free
    • Faculty & Staff $10 --  payable by cash or check.
  • LSU is also applying to become a point of distribution for the H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available. The H1N1 flu vaccine will be distributed in accordance with the CDC’s priority group vaccination recommendations.
  • Purell alcohol gel hand sanitizers will be placed in common areas in the coming weeks. Flu viruses remain viable for 2-8 hours on surfaces, so in addition to frequent hand washing with soap and water, please use the Purell.
  • If you do feel sick, with a fever, a cough, and body aches, please stay home and call your health care provider. If your children are sick, please do not bring them to work with you.
  • Please register for the Emergency Text Alert system at  https://www.lsuhsc.edu/alerts/e2campus/. It only takes a few minutes and provides another means for us to get important information to you for many types of emergencies or evolving situations. There’s no charge to register, but text message rates for your cellular plan will apply.
  • H1N1 flu information is posted at http://www.lsuhsc.edu/news/H1N1.htm, which is updated as new information is released.
