Flu Vaccine Clinic for Students
Getting an annual flu shot is the most effective way to prevent the flu. Since the strain of the flu virus changes every year, annual vaccines are needed. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against the flu, so make plans to get vaccinated early in the fall, before flu season begins. View the Flu Vaccine Clinic Schedule here.
