More than 700 faculty, staff, and their families take advantage of Flu Shot Clinic

The recent two-day flu-shot clinic in the Viking Union, sponsored by the university's Wise & Well U program, administered more than 700 flu shots to Western staff, faculty, and their families. Fifty more inoculations were given for whooping cough and pneumonia as well.

"I am very happy that so many employees took the opportunity to get their flu shots this season.  The goal of our Wise & Well U program is to be of value to faculty and staff, and the flu shot clinic was the first step of many to come with this program," said Kathy Thompson, Western's benefits manager and the director of Wise & Well U.
