October 27, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The final Flu Clinic will be held on:
Thursday, Oct. 27 from 5–7 p.m. in Blackhawk Room 110

Flu Shot Myths
1. Flu shots will give you the flu.
FALSE – The vaccine contains an inactive flu virus. It is dead and cannot infect you.

2. Vaccines are dangerous.
FALSE – Vaccines are, arguably, the greatest medical advance in history. They’ve prevented more illness and death than any other treatment.

3. It’s too late in the season to get a flu shot.
FALSE – There are plenty of vaccines left, and the flu stays around through March, so you still have plenty of time to protect yourself.

4. I got the vaccine last year, so I am protected.
FALSE – Each year there are new strains of the flu virus, and the vaccine needs to change to keep up.

By arming yourself with a flu shot, you are protecting yourself and those around you.
