Flu Information

 About the Flu

  • Be your own health care advocate, stay current through http://www.flu.gov
    and http://www.cdc.gov
  • Most healthy people recover from the flu without problems, but certain people are at high risk for serious complications
  • College students are susceptible to contracting flu viruses due to their close proximity in residential units and classrooms

Flu Vaccination

The Flu vaccine is offered to faculty, staff, and students every fall, usually beginning in October.  There is no charge for the vaccine.  However, supplies are limited and are given on a first come, first serve basis.  No appointment is needed for students. The more people on campus who are immunized the less we will be at risk for having a flu outbreak! Getting vaccinated is the best way to avoid getting either the seasonal or the H1N1 flu.

Get immediate medical care if you experience:

  • Difficulty breathing or short of breath
  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
  • Sudden Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
