Students, faculty and staff at The University of Southern Mississippi who want to prevent a bout with the flu can get an influenza vaccination at the Student Health Services clinic on the Hattesburg campus.
The vaccination is $25, but the cost is covered by many insurance programs, including the BCBS state employee plan. The clinic’s standard office visit fee is waived for those just getting the shot.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend vaccination against influenza as soon as the 2012-2013 flu season vaccine becomes available. Influenza seasons are unpredictable, and can begin as early as October.
