We care about the health of our community and we want our students, faculty, and staff to be healthy so they can be their best selves

This season, we are excited to announce that the Dean of the College is providing FREE Flu shots!

If you missed the campus wide flu shot clinics, you can still get a flu shot at no charge. Simply book an appointment with the nurses-we’ll do the rest. Faculty/Staff: Remember, the nurse is available until 8 p.m., so you can come by after hours.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all adults get the annual seasonal flu vaccine. This is especially important for those who are at higher risk with chronic health concerns such as asthma or diabetes and individuals with compromised immune systems.

Equally important is the prevention of seasonal influenza by washing your hands or using hand sanitizer, proper cough etiquette (coughing into your elbows), and avoiding public spaces if you do become sick.

We hope you have a healthy fall and winter!

Brought to you by the Garrison Foster Health Center, SHOC and the Dean of the College.

Garrison-Foster Health Center Earns Accreditation in 2015 for Fifth Consecutive Time
Colby College’s Garrison-Foster Health Center is the only college health center in Maine accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health (AAAHC).
