WPU Fights The Flu!

FightTheFluBillboard

The CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent contracting and spreading of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, and disinfect your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Don’t share food or drinks.
  • Get a flu shot. We strongly recommend everyone get a seasonal flu vaccination. While it will not prevent COVID-19, influenza is currently widespread in New Jersey. Flu vaccines are available at local pharmacies covered by most medical insurances. CHWC has flu vaccines for $15. Please call 973-7230-2360 to schedule an appointment. Read the NJ Department of Health weekly flu activity reports.

NOTICE: Directions to Submit Immunization Records

** MenB vaccine (Trumenba/Bexsero) is NOT the same as MenACWY (Menactra/Menveo) and therefore MenB DOES NOT fulfill the state vaccine requirement for dorming. MenB vaccine is highly recommended but not required for university attendance.

Psychological Emergency

There is a counselor on-call after office hours for psychological emergencies only. If you are experiencing a psychological emergency, and the office is closed, please call 973-720-2257 and ask to speak to the counselor on call. In the event of a medical emergency on campus, please call 911. You may also go to your nearest emergency room for a medical or psychological emergency.
