H1N1 FLU INFORMATION

Welcome Back Semester 2

January 22nd, 2010

Health Services would like to welcome you all back after a nice long break. Our hope is that you had a chance to get some much needed rest, relaxation, good food, exercise and are ready to return for a healthy semester. If you were not able to take advantage of the H1N1 Vaccine clinics we had last semester hopefully you were able to get it while you were home.

The Rhode Island Department of Health wants to remind everyone not to become complacent with the threat of H1N1. They are expecting the virus to make a large appearance in the Spring. We are reminded that prevention is the best way to stay healthy. You all did such a great job with this last semester, let us all continue.

Remember:

Wash your hands constantly

Sneeze or cough into your elbow

Disgard used tissue

If you have a fever or flu symptoms call Health Services 232-6220

If you are ill do not go into crowds or be around others

Eat well, sleep well and stay away from sick people

Get vaccinated

Remind friends of all of the above

Welcome Back!
