Oct 12, 2009

Lawrence, KS – The University of Kansas is planning to offer both H1N1 and seasonal flu shots later this month.

The new H1N1, or swine flu, vaccine will be given to members of the KU community for free, beginning Friday, October 30th.

"For h1n1 we're basically having flu-shot Fridays, every Friday starting October 30th through December 4th, for people who are eligible in the KU community," said KU spokesman Todd Cohen. "The priority group includes all people 6 months through 24 years of age, which obviously includes college students."

Cohen says seasonal flu shots will be available for KU students and staff starting next week. Seasonal flu shots, which cost $15.00, will be available at the student health center beginning on Tuesday, October 20th.
