    Free H1N1 vaccines available for SJC students and staff 

    Hey SJC students and staff!

    Mark your calendars! San Jacinto College will provide H1N1 vaccines to all students and employees (full- and part-time) free of charge next week. The vaccine will be available as either a shot or nasal spray, and you are encouraged to receive the vaccine as a precautionary measure before a new outbreak of the H1N1 virus hits the Houston area. Remember, it’s FREE!

    Vaccines will be available from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. as follows:

    • Tuesday, Feb. 2 – Central Campus Health Science Building foyer
    • Wednesday, Feb. 3 – North Campus Student Center lobby
    • Thursday, Feb. 4 – South Campus Student Center lobby

    All students and employees must present their San Jacinto College ID in order to receive the vaccination. Any student 17 years of age or younger must also present a release form (available from the Safety office), signed by a parent or guardian, before receiving the vaccine. At this time, the vaccine is not available to family members – it is only available to San Jacinto College students and employees.

    The vaccine will be administered by the San Jacinto College nursing department staff and senior nursing students. A special thank you to them for their assistance!

    For more information about the seasonal flu and H1N1 virus, please visit http://www.sanjac.edu/FluSeason or http://www.flu.gov. As always, please remember to take precautions to help prevent getting sick or spreading germs to others. Here are some important tips to consider:

    • Wash hands frequently, 20 seconds each time.
    • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Dry your hands thoroughly using a paper towel or air dryer. If possible, use the paper towel to turn off the faucet and turn the knob on the door handle.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
    • Cough into your sleeve or a tissue to avoid spreading germs. Do not cough into your hands.
    • Put tissue in a wastebasket.
    • Keep surfaces clean, especially those used by others such as telephones and keyboards. Choose liquid over bar soap.
    • Avoid contact with people who are ill.

    If you have any questions, please contact Ginger Lambert of Hollie Fulsom in the safety office at 281-998-6183, or ginger.lambert@sjcd.edu or hollie.fulsom@sjcd.edu.

    Some like it hot (some, not) 

    Clare Iannelli, Dr. Allatia Harris, and James Hall provided service with a smile at the chili lunch.

    Chief administrators served as the chief disher-uppers at a recent chili luncheon at the North campus. Campus leaders serving food included Dr. Allatia Harris, Dr. Gary Friery, Dr. Richard Bailey, Serita Dickey, Clare Iannelli, and James Hall. The annual event is held at the end of the spring registration rush, as a way to show appreciation to the faculty and staff members who work so selflessly to help students during registration. North campus employees enjoyed delicious chili (regular and high octane), served with cheese, onions, and other goodies. The food was prepared by students and instructors of the North campus’ highly-acclaimed culinary arts program, under the direction of Steve Rudd, Sean Perrodin, Donna Jones, and Timothy Banks.

    Hungry? Stop by the revamped cafeterias for pizza, hamburgers and hotdogs. 

    The steam lines are out and the glass walls have come down to reveal two familiar fast-food restaurants, Pizza Hut and A&W. The Raven Café at Central boasts new tabletops, booths, lighting and paint. The South campus cafeteria also features new seating, along with a new wall texture and upholstery.

    “Our top priority is to manage the campus food service efficiently and effectively, and by doing so, provide a place for our students, faculty and staff to relax, relate and connect with themselves and others,” said Mary Johnson, food service manager at the South campus.

    Cafeteria renovations were decided after surveys revealed students’ preference for an update of dining facilities. The project began early last year. Food quality and affordable pricing were the deciding factors that resulted in the selection of Pizza Hut and A&W.

    “This is about brand recognition,” said Mark Escobedo, food service manager at Central. “These restaurants are known worldwide for their quality of food that’s also price sensitive.”

    Menu items include a variety of popular single and combination pizzas, pastas, breadsticks, hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream treats and floats.
