FLU CLINICS CANCELLED DUE TO SHORTAGE:
The fall 2004 UNI flu clinics have been canceled due to a shortage of
available vaccine. Clinics will be rescheduled as soon as vaccine supplies
allow. Iowa does not typically see influenza cases until December, so there
is time to deal with the situation. The Iowa Department of Public Health has
requested that healthcare providers assess vaccine needs based on a list of
priority groups. See http://www.idph.state.ia.us/ The UNI Student Health
Clinic will announce rescheduled clinics as soon as possible.
