Increase in flu cases

The Student Health Clinic has seen an increased number of students who have tested positive for the flu. It is important to practice good hand washing hygiene and disinfect frequently touched surfaces regularly in order to reduce the spread of the flu. The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot. If you have not yet received a flu shot, you can still get one through local pharmacies and health care clinics. UNI health insurance plans cover one flu vaccine per year, per person covered on the plans. If you are experiencing symptoms of the flu, stay home while you are ill. For more information on flu symptoms and prevention, visit the flu prevention webpage.
