The Center for Disease Control recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. Viral illnesses are very common on college campuses so you can protect yourself from the flu by getting a flu shot as soon as possible.
While there are many different flu viruses, a flu vaccine protects against the viruses that research suggests will be most common. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu shot.
