LAWRENCE -- University of Kansas Student Health Services resumed providing flu vaccinations today after suspending vaccination clinics at the Lawrence campus two weeks ago when its supply was depleted due to delayed shipments.

A flu vaccination clinic is open until 2 p.m. today in the Kansas Union. A schedule for additional clinics to be offered on campus between Nov. 16 and Dec. 7 will be posted later at www.studenthealth.ku.edu.

Student Health Services had received approximately 60 percent, or 1,170 doses, of its total order before the clinics began Oct. 25. All of those doses were distributed through appointments for high-risk individuals or at the first four vaccination clinics and the supply was depleted Nov. 1.

For more information, contact the Wellness Resource Center at 864-9570.
