Prevent the Flu
With influenza at record levels this year, it’s vital that we do all we can to prevent the spread of the flu across our campus. If you haven’t already, PLEASE GET VACCINATED. Another important step to prevention is frequent, thorough hand washing – even if you’re not ill. If you can’t use soap and water, then use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Additionally, make sure you’re getting enough rest, and eat a healthy diet to help bolster your immune system against the flu.
If you’re interested in getting a flu shot, Faculty and Staff can reach out to our RN educator Laurie Ehlers at email@example.com or 832-7498 to schedule an appointment.
Students can go to the Health Center Monday-Friday, 7:30-11:30am and 1-4pm, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. No appointments are necessary.
