On Wednesday October 14th, Health Services will be offering FREE flu vaccines to all SU/ESF students and SU employees. The vaccines will be given from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Flanagan Gym. No appointment is necessary, but you will need to have your SU/ESF ID with you. If you have any questions, you can call Health Services at 315-443-9005.

Flu Season


Flu season in the United States can begin as early as late October. It typically peaks in January or February.
The single best way to prevent getting the flu is to get the vaccine every fall. Students can begin their flu protection by getting vaccinated at the free flu clinic held on Wednesday, October 14th at Flanagan Gym.

“Everyone on campus should get vaccinated for flu”, Michele Frontale, supervising pharmacist says. “It promotes a healthy campus. The more students, staff and faculty are vaccinated, the more it keeps our teachers teaching and our students going to class.”

Meningitis on Campus

Know your Risk

Certain college students are at increased risk for meningococcal disease, a potentially fatal bacterial infection commonly referred to as meningitis.

In fact, freshmen living in dorms are found to have a 6-fold increased risk for this serious disease. A U.S. health advisory panel recommends that college students particularly freshmen living in dorms, learn more about meningitis and vaccination.

Learn more about this infectious disease. Find out how it’s spread. Understand the symptoms-often mistaken for the flu. Learn about a vaccine that helps to prevent meningitis.

For more information about the vaccine, contact the Pharmacy at Health Services, 315-443-5691.
