Boston Coalition for Adult Immunization
The Boston Coalition for Adult Immunization (BCAI) delivers free flu vaccinations to underserved (or potentially underserved) populations in and around Boston. This program critically depends on the work of students! B.U. medical students volunteer in conjunction with Tufts and Harvard medical students.
This organization offers students the opportunity to:
- Learn to give flu vaccinations (and actually give them!);
- Visit neighborhood clinics, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and other patient settings in the Boston area; and
- Learn about public health issues and perform community service.
In order to administer vaccinations, students must first attend orientation and training sessions.
