Little Bob clinic to serve only students with special health criteria

8:54 a.m., May 1, 2009----UPDATE: The Carpenter Sports Building clinic closed at 3 p.m. UD students who are experiencing flu-like symptoms should go to Student Health Services in Laurel Hall, which is open 24 hours a day.

 

Beginning at 10 a.m., Friday, May 1, the Delaware Division of Public Health clinic at the Carpenter Sports Building (the Little Bob) will focus ONLY on providing preventive doses to UD students who meet special health criteria.

The clinic at the Little Bob will serve students who meet both of the following criteria:

-- Student must have a chronic condition (chronic lung, heart, liver, blood, neurologic, neuromuscular or metabolic disorders; or be over 50; or be pregnant; or be immunosuppressed -- for example, students who are on medications such as Prednisone or who have HIV) -- AND the student must have been exposed to the flu through close contact with sick students, such as being in the same household, being a roommate, or being an intimate partner

The vast majority of UD students will not need to be treated with preventive medication. This service is only being offered to UD students. Those who do not meet these conditions, or who do not have other health issues, do not need to seek health services.

Student Health Clinic

Any UD student who is experiencing flu-like symptoms should go to Student Health Services in Laurel Hall, which is open 24 hours a day.
