GVSU to offer H1N1 vaccines to public

Posted on

The Kirkhof College of Nursing at Grand Valley will hold two public H1N1 flu immunization clinics at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 47 Jefferson St. SE in Grand Rapids.

Clinic dates are Tuesday, February 23, 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; and Thursday, February 25, 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Nasal mists and injections will be available.

The clinics are a collaboration between the Kirkhof College of Nursing and Westminster Presbyterian Church, but are open to the public. KCON, for years, has operated a health clinic in the Heartside neighborhood that reaches underserved populations, in addition to Grand Valley faculty and staff members and students.

The vaccines are covered by Medicaid and some other insurance companies; participants are asked to bring their insurance cards. For more information, contact the GVSU Family Health Center at (616) 988-8774.
