Fairfield University students assist in the flu shot campaign


Media Advisory

On Tuesday, Oct. 23, Fairfield University student nurses assisted the Fairfield Health Department in their annual flu shot campaign at The Fairfield Senior Center at Mona Terrace. The students aided in the administration of flu shots to 1000 Fairfield adults. The students were also able to check blood pressures.

This program was a part of the clinical rotation that the School of Nursing offers students. The students enjoyed the hands-on experience, and the response from the Fairfield community was a positive one.

The students will be returning to The Senior Center next Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., for another session. If you would like more information, please call the course coordinator, Dr. Phil Greiner at (203) 254-400 at ext. 2718.
