University Health Services (UHS)
FLU VACCINE BLITZ
Tuesday, September 26, and Wednesday, September 27,
10 a.m. - 7 p.m., Stepan Center
The University will offer free flu vaccines to students, faculty, staff, and their dependents at the annual Flu Vaccine Blitz today and tomorrow inside the Stepan Center. Although students are not required to be vaccinated this fall, it is highly encouraged. Last year’s vaccination proved to significantly protect against flu-related illness and flu-related Emergency Department visits. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), those who receive the vaccine are half as likely to have flu-related illness as people who are not vaccinated. This trend was seen at UHS last year as the volume and severity of flu cases seen by our providers were among the lowest in the past seven years. This is directly attributable to the very high influenza vaccination rate attained by the student community. It is not too late to register. Advance registration is required. Sign up here.
