Flu Season is Nigh! Luckily, Flu Shots are available.

Flu Season is Nigh! Luckily, Flu Shots are available.Flu season is fast approaching, and given the summer bugs that brought a lot of folk down, Human resources Director Kelley Maddox suggests all faculty, staff and students explore their options for flu shots as soon as possible.

For those who have Brenau health insurance, shots are covered, if you get them through your physician´s office or at CVS Minute Clinics (the drug store chain´s Web site has a locater service at www.cvs.com/flu to help you find a store near you where you can get the shots).

For those who do not have Brenau health insurance or who like prefer the convenience, Brenau´s Health Services on the Gainesville campus, in partnership with the Hall County Health Department, has a limited quantity of flu vaccine available by appointment for students, faculty and staff (18 and older) for $25 per injection. Call Health Services at 770-534-6135 for your appointment; no appointments will be made by e-mail. After you have your appointment, you can pay at the accounting office, located at 316 Boulevard, by cash, check of credit card, then take the receipt to Health Services at your appointed time.

Flu shots are available through other drug stores, clinics and public health services. But neither these nor the Brenau Health Services shots are covered by Brenau group insurance.
