Flu Vaccine Clinics are open to Meredith faculty/staff, students and eligible family members.
September is not too early to get a flu shot. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza, and influenza seasons can begin as early as October. Therefore, CDC recommends that vaccination begin as soon as vaccine becomes available to ensure that as many people as possible are protected before flu season begins.
