Flu Season Has Arrived - Are You Ready?

Early data suggests this flu season may be worse than usual. Normal muations to one of the active flu strains mean that this season's flu vaccine may be less effective at protecting you against the flu than that of others years. However, people who get the vaccine are still protected against two common strains of flu viruses so may experience milder symptoms if they get the mutated strain.

Getting vaccinated is still the best way to protect yurself against the flu. The health center still has a limited number of vaccines. Call for availability and times of flu clinics. Check your flu IQ see what you know about the flu.

Take everyday precautions - like washing your hands, covering your cough and staying away from people who are ill. If you do get sick, do not return to class until your tempature has been below 100 degrees for 24 hours.
