AVOID THE FLU AT VU

  • Get your flu shot- The vaccine administered will be a thimerosal-free, latex-free quadrivalent inactivated vaccine.  Flu mist is not available due to low effectiveness.
     
  • Cover your mouth and nose- When you are with others or alone, cough or sneeze with a disposable tissue or into your sleeve.
     
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    .  
  • Don't share silverware, dishes, cups and glasses with anybody else.
     
  • Mask up-  if you have flu-like symptoms (cough, sore throat, fever).

If you have a fever or flu-like symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with the flu or COVID-19, visit us at the Student Health Center.  Please put on a mask when arriving at the SHC and enter on the "Sick Side".
