Anyone who hasn't received the flu vaccine is encouraged to attend. Please bring your insurance card if you have one.
Practice Good Respiratory Hygiene to Avoid Spreading the Flu Virus
- Avoid close contact with sick people. While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to avoid infecting them.
- If you have a fever, stay home from work/class until you are fever free for at least 24 hours.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
