Influenza Information

To Find A Flu Vaccine:

Please continue to follow the simple rules that should help to avoid getting or spreading the flu; wash your hands frequently; cover your cough; if you feel sick, go home; if you live on campus make  arrangements to move temporarily to a friend’s room if your roommate becomes sick.

Below is a list of questions about the virus and what to do if you feel sick.  The answers will help you decide whether you need to go home to recover or call your family doctor.

Do you have any of the following symptoms?

  • Abrupt onset of cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose/congestion
  • Muscle aches
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever over 100.4
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If you have any of these symptoms, go home, get plenty of rest and drink fluids.  If your symptoms get worse; your temperature goes over 103; you become dehydrated and you are unable to retain fluids; you have difficulty breathing; or you have chest pain- go to the nearest Emergency Department.
