Get Your 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 beginning September 2022.
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 for at least 24 hours. 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."
