Michigan State University is partnering with the East Lansing Department of Police and Public Safety, MSU Health Care and the Ingham County Health Department to hold a vaccine clinic on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at the Breslin Center from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Members of the community will have access to vaccinations against influenza and the bivalent COVID-19 vaccinations and their boosters.

“That’ll be important for the campus community if they’re thinking about another level of protection,” MSU deputy spokesperson Dan Olsen said.

Young adults in a college setting tend to have higher rates of transmission of illness, especially in closed spaces such as basketball games that become popular during flu season. Community leaders are hoping to get ahead of any outbreak. 

Experts say that this flu season could see higher rates of transmission of influenza as well as COVID-19, hence the vaccine clinic offering both doses. They continue to suggest masks if there are symptoms of sickness.

Students can always schedule an appointment through Olin Health Center or the MSU Pharmacy to receive vaccinations at any time.
