Free flu vaccinations being offered to Stanford community

For our Stanford readers who haven't yet gotten a flu shot: It's not too late. The Flu Crew, the student-run organization whose work I wrote about this fall, is collaborating with the Vaden Health Center to hold an emergency flu clinic on campus tomorrow. The event, which will be at Arrillaga Family Dining Commons on Friday from 6-8 PM, was organized out of concern about the severity of this year's flu season. Stanford students, faculty and staff are all welcome.
