Flu Season 2017-2018

The best way to protect against influenza (flu) is to get a flu vaccine every flu season. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious illness, hospitalization, or even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. The first and most important step in protecting against flu is to get a flu vaccine each season. CDC recommends everyone six months and older get an annual flu vaccine. 


Flu vaccines are NOW available at the student health center: Free To the first 100 students ($20 thereafter) stop by during student health center hours or make an appointment by calling: (310) 287-4478.
