Students, staff and faculty at Carleton University unexpectedly received the H1N1 vaccine from the school’s health services Tuesday morning after about 30 people failed to show up for their appointments on Monday. The clinics, which opened Monday afternoon, have enough of the vaccine for about 125 people a day until they close on Thursday.
The number of no-shows meant that people visiting the health and counselling services clinic on the Carleton campus for regular appointments were given the opportunity to receive the vaccine.
“If they want them, we give it to them,” said Maureen Murdock, director of health and counselling services at Carleton.
