Get the Flu Vaccine!

Students may get a free flu vaccine at Health Services, Monday through Friday on a walk-in basis from 9 a.m.– 3 p.m.

What happens if you get the flu?

If you test positive for the flu, you may not go to class for at least five days, and until you are fever-free. It is up to you and your professor to make a plan for asynchronous or synchronous learning, based on the class.

You will be encouraged to go home if you are able. If you are a residential student who does stay on campus, you will need to wear a mask at all times. You will also receive a “buddy” form, so that a friend can pick up food for you in Commons."

Flu symptoms:

  • fever or feeling feverish/chill 
  • cough 
  • sore throat 
  • runny or stuffy nose 
  • muscle or body aches 
  • headaches 
  • fatigue (tiredness)
