Health Officials to Administer Tetanus Shots To Those Entering Uris Hall

GANNETT — After a steady increase in student Tetanus cases over the past year, Cornell University announced their plans to have all students receive a Tetanus vaccination before entering the infamously rusty Uris Hall.

“Cornell aims to protect its students from the deadly diseases inherent on our campus,” said Deidre Moritz, a Gannett Health Services Representative, “it’s hard to appreciate a meaningful education at such a prestigious university if you’ve got lock-jaw and neck spasms.”

“It’ll be a little inconvenient to show my immunization records every time I go to Econ lecture,” said Jeremy Soled ’19, “but I guess this way I don’t have to worry about getting a deadly bacterial infection every time I hand in a problem set. There’s no free lunch as they say.”

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has also recommended students entering their building to receive the newest H5N1 avian influenza vaccine.
