• Flu 2020

Flu (Influenza)

Yearly flu shots (early October to mid-December) are recommended for everyone but are especially indicated for anyone with asthma, chronic heart or lung disease, diabetes, or other health problems that compromise the ability to fight infections. 

Flu Vaccines – Each fall we offer flu vaccine at no cost to students in order to protect them against influenza.

Why get vaccinated? – Influenza (“flu”) is a contagious disease that spreads every winter, usually between October and May. It is caused by influenza viruses and is spread mainly by coughing, sneezing, and close contact. The flu vaccine is the best protection against the flu and its complications. The vaccine also helps prevent spreading flu from person to person. UHS gives an injectable flu vaccine, which is either an “inactivated” or recombinant” vaccine. These vaccines do not contain any live influenza virus. It takes about 2 weeks for protection to develop after the vaccination, and protection last several months to a year.
