The SHSU Student Health Center, as well as other health care providers, are experiencing a high demand for the seasonal influenza vaccine. The Health Center administered 1,324 doses of the vaccine to students on September 23rd and 24th. To put this in perspective, the department administered as many doses to both students and employees over the course of four days last year.

Consequently, the administration of the flu vaccine for employees has been rescheduled for Thursday, October 8th, and Friday, October 9th. Further details will follow.

Meanwhile, employees that have not already received their vaccine can request it from their healthcare provider or the following Huntsville locations. Please call to confirm dates, time, availability, and price.

SHSU 'In the News'


Brian Domitrovic, assistant professor of history, appeared on Book TV (C-SPAN) May 1-2, speaking about his recent book "Econoclasts: The Rebels Sparked the Supply Side Revolution and Restored American Prosperity" (www.econoclasts.net).


Houston Chronicle education writer Jeannie Kever recently turned to Regents Professor of English Paul Ruffin for his views on university presses moving toward "digital books" as opposed to traditional ink-on-paper."We're fulfilling the ancient role of the university press, and that is to produce books," said Paul Ruffin, the Texas poet laureate for 2009 and director of the Texas Review Press at Sam Houston State University. "I don't want to give up the book because it is an art."
