GSU offers low-cost flu shots

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Students stopped by the Recreation Activity Center for something that could save them days of misery later in the winter. Georgia Southern University's Health Services and the College of Nursing have teamed up to offer flu shots.

"Students might think if they've had a shot in previous years, they're immunized. That's not true," explained Health Services director Paul Ferguson. "Each year, the flu is slightly different and you need an updated immunization."

The agencies will offer another drive from 9 a.m. to 11am Jan. 31 in the Russell Student Union Room 2080. The cost is $5 for students and $10 for faculty and staff. However, Ferguson said most health insurances cover that cost.
