MACOMB, IL -- Western Illinois University employees and retirees can help ward off the flu by taking advantage of a free flu shot clinic Thursday, Oct. 19 on the WIU-Macomb campus.

The McDonough County Health Department will offer a seasonal flu shot clinic at no cost for Western employees from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. in the University Union Heritage Room.

Participants will need to present a WIU ID card and a state-issued health insurance ID card to obtain a shot, which will be administered as long as supplies last.

The clinic is also open to survivors of employees and to employees of other state agencies. Dependents and spouses are not eligible for the shots.

For those employees who cannot attend the Oct. 19 flu shot clinic, contact the McDonough County Health Department at (309) 837-9951 to schedule an appointment.
