There are a number of steps you can take to minimize your risk of getting the flu as well as to reduce the likelihood of spreading the flu to others if you should become sick.
Talk with your health care providers about whether you should be vaccinated for seasonal flu. Also, if you are at higher risk for complications from the 2009 H1N1 flu, you should consider getting the H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available. People at higher risk for the 2009 H1N1 flu complications include pregnant women and people with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, heart disease, or diabetes. The seasonal flu vaccine will be offered in the Student Center from 12-5 on the following dates: September 29, October 14, and October 29.
