There are perks to being a student at Butler University. I just got my flu shot in the basement of the new pharmacy building. The process was very efficient, and ya can’t beat free flu shots. My one complaint? It was mighty toasty down there. It may be fall, but it’s not that cold out.
Climate control aside, the process was quite simple. Just walk in, fill out a form, get the flu shot, wait for fifteen minutes, and walk out a free (and flu-free) woman. I know there’s some controversy surrounding the use of immunizations–isn’t there always some controversy?–but I feel like I should get a flu shot as a college student. We all live in close proximity to one another, especially those student in residence halls. We are not known to be the cleanest bunch. And the dance majors roll around on the floor and come in close bodily contact.
So I got flu shot. For free. In about thirty minutes. In a building right across from my first class.
Like I said, perks.
