Flu Vaccine Clinic

Nov 14th 2pm-6pm Recreation & Wellness Center Lounge

Influenza vaccines — though not 100 percent effective — significantly reduce the risk of the flu and its complications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age or older be vaccinated annually against influenza, and take these additional steps to help protect yourself from the flu and other viruses:

--Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water.

-- Use an alcohol-based sanitizer on your hands if soap and water aren’t available.

--Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth whenever possible.

--Avoid crowds when the flu is most prevalent in your area.

--Practice good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, exercise regularly, drink plenty of fluids, eat a nutritious diet and manage your stress.

You can also help prevent the spread of the flu by staying home if you do get sick. Individuals who miss one of the scheduled on-campus vaccination clinics are encouraged to contact their local pharmacy or primary care physician directly.
