Flu season has begun and MEPN students are urging residents to get their flu shots. 70,000 to 80,000 people died last year as a result of flu season. Infants, elderly, and people with a compromised immune system are the most vulnerable.
Last week, MEPN students packed up their equipment and headed over to Mesa College to vaccinate over 300 college students. “It’s not only about self-protection, but about protecting the entire community” stated Dr. Susie Hutchins, the faculty overseeing the nursing students on this community service project.
