Flu Information

 About the Flu

  • Be your own health care advocate, stay current through http://www.cdc.gov/flu
  • 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

This year it is more important than ever to get a flu vaccine.  The flu vaccine is offered to faculty, staff and students this year by appointment only.  There is no charge for the vaccine.  Supplies are limited so please call the Student Health Center to schedule.  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.  COVID-19 remains a threat, and coupled with the flu season could create a greater challenge for the campus community. 


 Get immediate medical care if you experience:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness 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
