Stanford Flu Crew Provides Free Vaccines to Community
The Stanford Flu Crew began in 2001 when Dr. Walter Newman, a family physician and adjunct associate professor at Stanford Medical School, taught several first year medical students to give flu shots and took them to a local farm to provide to farm workers with vaccinations.
Today, the Stanford Flu Crew is one of the largest and most dynamic influenza prevention programs of any medical school in the country. In addition to offering free vaccinations, Stanford Flu Crew’s mission is to increase awareness of the need to vaccinate annually for influenza, address misconceptions related to vaccinations, and educate others about proper hand-washing techniques and other methods to prevent the spread of infection altogether.
