Flu Shot Clinics

Flu season is upon us with several laboratory confirmed cases of flu reported on-campus.
Now is the time to take good care of yourself and others.


Tips on avoiding the flu and other illnesses:

  • Get a flu shot now. Contact your primary care physician, local board of health,
    Norton Medical Center (508-286-5400) or Walgreens in Norton (508-285-4961).
  • Wash or sanitize your hands frequently.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with others who are sick.
  • Clean things that are touched often (keyboards, phones).

If you have not received your flu shot, contact NMC
(508-286-5400), your primary care physician or Walgreens
(508-285-4961) to receive one.

Here's some simple ways to reduce the spread of the flu and other illnesses:

  • Stay home to recover if you're sick and avoid exposing others.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or cough and sneeze
    into your sleeve.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands frequently.
