Flu season 2017-18 is here
It's still important to get your flu vaccine!
According to the CDC, "You should get a flu vaccine now, if you haven’t gotten one already this season. It’s best to get vaccinated before flu begins spreading in your community. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against flu."
Each year, the flu causes students to miss an average of five days of class. Even healthy Badgers can get sick.
Students who have chronic health conditions—such as asthma, diabetes, or immune disorders—are strongly encouraged to get a flu shot every year. A flu shot protects you and those around you.
The cost of your flu shot is covered by your student health fees and it takes less than 10 minutes to get vaccinated!
