Need a flu shot?

The Idaho State University College of Pharmacy faculty, students and staff will provide free flu vaccinations to the first 40 guests who register for adult flu shots during an open house, Thursday, Oct. 28, 5:30 to 8 p.m., at the Idaho State University-Meridian Health Science Center, 1311 E. Central Drive.

Once the 40 free vaccines have been used, Sav-on Pharmacy will provide additional shots for $20—a $10 discount.

The open house, held in conjunction with American Pharmacists Month, is free and will feature tours of the L.S. Skaggs Pharmacy Complex, refreshments and information regarding immunizations, heartburn awareness programs, diabetes education and poison prevention.

Student pharmacists, assisted by licensed pharmacy faculty members, will answer questions regarding your prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.

In addition, students will hold a chili fundraiser and raffle that night. Tickets to the dinner are $5.  However, you don’t have to buy a ticket to attend the open house.
