For protection's sake

Murray State University student Nathan Feldmeier, a junior from Waterloo, Illinois, receives his influenza vaccine Thursday afternoon from Murray State Student Health Services nurse practitioner Melissa Bailey-Swinea during a vaccination clinic on the lawn of Hart Residential College. Students have been the priority of health workers on campus this week with clinics offered Wednesday and Thursday after faculty and staff had their opportunity last week. Health officials are strongly emphasizing the need for everyone to receive a shot this year because of the threat of contracting the flu and COVID-19 at the same time.
