Annual Flu Vaccination

Getting vaccinated each year is one of the BEST ways to protect yourself – and others – against seasonal influenza.

Because of the close proximity within which we work, live, and study, annual vaccination is recommended for students, faculty, and staff at colleges and universities by the CDC and the American College Health Association. Vaccination is especially important for people who are at higher risk of developing flu-related complications.

For the 2018-2019 academic year, flu shots are available only; no FluMist.
