A nurse prepares a syringe filled with the flu vaccine at a free vaccination event at the Whitten University Center during the first week of the spring semester. UM always offers free vaccinations to students and faculty in the fall, before the peak of flu season, but with the 2012-2013 season shaping up to be the worst in many years, vaccination events are being held during the spring semester in an attempt to limit the epidemic’s spread on the Coral Gables campus.
