Don't Forget! Shots: Round 1

Crew! Hey, just wanted to remind you that the SJC Health Dept will be on premises here at GCC tomorrow night before New Community (Thursday, June 21) to administer immunizations for you as you prepare to go to India. Some quick reminders about tomorrow night:
* Time: 5:45 - 6:45 pm
* Place: Meeting Room by Staff Offices
* Don't worry... if you don't know where the Staff Offices are, we'll have someone in the Atrium to direct you.
* Please come prepared to pay for your own shots. You may also raise support to cover the cost of shots, but be aware of the fact that such increases your total amount to raise, and therefore the amount necessary for your "full support due". Below are the costs associated with each immunization:
  • Twin-Rix (Hepatitis A & B)*: $50
  • Typhoid: $58
  • Polio Update**: $37
  • Tetanus: $8
  • Measles/Mumps: $50
* Twin-Rix is a 3 dose vaccination. Each dose costs $50, but when you are finished with the full cycle, you will be immune to Hep A and B for life.
** If you have not had a Polio booster since childhood, you will want/need to have this.

See you then!
