“When a large number of students and employees are vaccinated against the flu, it makes it more difficult for the disease to spread. The clinic benefits the community and our students, who are able to provide this valuable service back to their Aggie family.”
- Suzanne Van, MSN, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Nursing
The Texas A&M Division of Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness has partnered with Texas A&M Physicians, the colleges of Nursing, Pharmacy, and Medicine, and the Health Science Center Office of Interprofessional Education & Research to offer influenza (flu) vaccine clinics for Texas A&M System employees, their eligible dependents and retirees who are covered under the A&M Care plan (Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas).
There are five flu vaccine clinics in October and November. At each clinic, Health Science Center students will participate and learn valuable clinical and interprofessional skills. Additionally, the drive-thru clinic allows students an invaluable opportunity to experience a fast-paced mock mass vaccination situation as part of their disaster preparedness training. Faculty advise and monitor students throughout the process.
