Influenza Vaccine Information
The Flu vaccine is the best way we have to protect ourselves against the influenza virus. The flu virus is unpredictable. We cannot always anticipate how severely it will affect different groups of people. The Flu vaccination can help protect people who are at greater risk of getting seriously ill from flu, like older adults, people with chronic health conditions (Diabetes, Asthma, or on medications that suppress the immune system) and young children (especially infants younger than 6 months old who are too young to get vaccinated). Flu vaccination also may make your illness milder if you do get sick. Being immunized with the flu vaccine every year significantly reduces the risk of you being hospitalized due to flu, and it protects other vulnerable members of your family and the UD community.
Make sure you get your Flu shot this year. Students should call 302-831-2226 option 1 for an appointment.
