"Usually when a flu vaccine isn't as effective as we like it to be, it's because that virus has changed in some way. Getting your flu shot not only protects you and your loved ones, it protects those susceptible to getting the flu, such as the elderly and newborns". "These are available on campus for students and staff and faculty".

With 10 confirmed cases of the flu already reported in Hillsdale County, officials with the Branch-Hillsdale-St.

Health Department staff members began receiving their flu shots on Tuesday, with several employees sharing personal reasons about why they choose to become vaccinated.

Rajesh Balkrishnan, students have a unique responsibility to consider how their health choices impact the rest of the community.

For Schaffner, as we start heading deeper into the flu season, the main thing to keep in mind is get vaccinated - and tell your friends and family to do the same. It is possible to infect others even when you do not show any symptoms.

Within the first three days of their walk-in clinic, staff at Lafene Health Center administered 122 shots, which is 40 percent more than they did during the clinic's first week in 2017. When coming for their flu shot, all clients should try to wear short sleeves for easy access to the injection site. Should I get vaccinated?
