Get your flu jab!

Don’t be one of the unfortunate flu….

Last year the Health Centre was stretched to capacity with very ill students suffering from the flu. And by ‘the flu’  we mean extreme body aches and lung problems resulting in two weeks on your back considering the deeper questions of life – not a bit of snot and a cough.

The best way to get your degree is to get a flu jab – provided free (yes FREE!!!)  to UC students who are registered at the Health Centre. To register come in or check out the Health Centre website.

If you’re not a joiner, call into UCSA, pick up a flu voucher and you’ll be charged only $5 at the Health Centre. Same for International Students.

Flu clinics run:

  • Monday to Thursday 9 -10am  and 2-3pm
  • Friday  2-3 pm.

And if you can’t do this because you’re the biggest chicken on the planet – can you please WASH YOUR HANDS and COUGH INTO YOUR ELBOW!
