Dear UAlbany Student:

If half of all UAlbany students were vaccinated, disease activity would be cut by almost 70% on campus. I encourage you to join the nearly 2,000 UAlbany students who have been vaccinated if you have not already done so, and please promote the vaccination to your fellow students as it is safe and protects you and those around you.

There are two clinics remaining this semester - this Friday, November 20th and when we return from Thanksgiving break on Wednesday, December 2nd. You can register for these clinics through MyUAlbany. Additionally, walk-ins the day of each clinic will also be accepted on a space-available basis.

The University has been very fortunate to receive this vaccine in a timely fashion. Visit the University's H1N1 web site for more vaccine-related information at: https://www.albany.edu/h1n1/vaccinefaq.shtml.

Please remember, to qualify to receive the vaccine, you must be under 24 years of age or provide medical documentation from your treating physician at the time of vaccination confirming an underlying medical condition (heart or chronic lung disease, asthma-excluding simple exercise induced asthma, immunosuppressive disorders, severe neuro-muscular disorders, pregnancy).
