An additional supply of the injectable H1N1 vaccine has been received at Brady Health. Therefore we now have both the nasal spray form of the H1N1 vaccine and the injectable form. Either H1N1 vaccine is available at no charge to any student, faculty or staff member of Frostburg State who desires to receive the vaccine. Because of increased availability, there are no longer any restrictions on who can receive H1N1 vaccination. Call 301-687-4310 to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions.

The seasonal flu vaccine clinics were a resounding success with more than double the students, faculty and staff receiving vaccination than in previous years. Brady Health Center currently has some doses of the seasonal flu nasal vaccine (FluMist) still in stock and we are awaiting delivery of additional doses of the inactivated seasonal vaccine (flu shot.)
The H1N1 flu vaccine is expected to arrive in late October and notification will be made once it is available. We will be following CDC guidelines for the administration of that vaccine once it becomes available. See questions and answers about the H1N1 vaccine for further information
