A campaign offering flu shots to University of Alabama students, faculty and staff begins on Monday.
College of Community Health Sciences Dean Dr. Richard Streiffer tells the Tuscaloosa News that the vaccine is the "first and most important" step to prevent the flu. Nurses will visit sites all over the campus during the next three months to provide the free shots, and no insurance is required. All students and employees need is their campus identification.
The vaccines also are available to children of UA employees.
