Protecting yourself from the H1N1 flu is important not only for your health and academic success, but also for the health of your friends and family. Don’t bring the H1N1 flu home for the holidays!

This vaccine will be the injectable form. Student Health will be following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for H1N1 vaccine administration, which means that only students who are 24 years of age or younger will be candidates at this time. If you believe you may already have had H1N1 influenza, you are still advised to be vaccinated since we cannot be absolutely certain that you had H1N1. The vaccination will provide greater protection from future exposure.

Offered by the Department of Student Health, in cooperation with Intravene, our program partner.
