Faculty, Staff and Students to receive free flu vaccines

October 28, 2019
The Arkansas Department of Health will hold an on-site flu vaccination clinic for all UA-PTC faculty, staff and students on Thursday, Nov. 14, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Locations are at the CHARTS Foyer on the Main Campus in North Little Rock and at Little Rock – South site concourse outside of the Student Services offices. Vaccinations are free of charge and insurance isn't required. Please bring a student/employee ID.

The goal is to improve public health by making flu vaccinations convenient for UA-PTC students!

According to the Centers for Disease Control, influenza –or the flu- is a potentially serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently, but millions of people get flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands to tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect against flu. Vaccination has been shown to have many benefits, including reducing the risk of flu illnesses, hospitalizations and even the risk of flu-related death in children.
