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.

Here's some 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.
