Aggie students get free H1N1 vaccine as part of Health Week

Free H1N1 vaccinations will be available to students at the lounge across from the Taggart Student Center (TSC) Ballroom Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.Student Health Week, hosted by the Student Health and Wellness Center, will run from Nov. 9-12, and it will encompass a bevy of activities, from lectures to free food and T-shirts.The director of the center, Jim Davis, said the week is to inform students about the center and what services are available to them.”When we survey our students … they like what we do, they like how we do it,” Jim Davis said. “The problem we find is that many students on campus don’t simply know about us.”The building where the center resides in, 850 E. 1200 North, was once inhabited by Cache Valley Specialty Hospital, Davis said. The university purchased the building in 2000, after the hospital moved to its current location at 2380 N. 400 East.The Student Health and Wellness Center used to be two separate entities, known as Student Health Center and Student Wellness Center, Davis said. The two were located in the TSC. He said the two centers merged because of a budget cut.
