Operation Immunization Brings Flu Shots to Ole Miss Community
The University of Mississippi chapter of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists is conducting its annual Operation Immunization for providing flu shots to the Ole Miss community.
Operation Immunization is an immunization awareness campaign designed to increase the public’s knowledge while increasing the number of adults receiving immunizations.
The cost is $40, and can be billed to most insurance plans, as university students, faculty and staff should bring their Ole Miss ID and prescription insurance card. What insurance doesn’t cover can be charged to Bursar accounts.
