In an effort to further protect our campus communities throughout the region, the Center for Rural Health at Northern Michigan University is bringing universities throughout the U.P. together to “Fight the Flu”. Students, staff and faculty from Finlandia University, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Technological University and Northern Michigan University are competing to see which school can get the highest percentage of its total population vaccinated against the flu.
In addition to the Finlandia Flu Shot Clinic on Oct. 12, the vaccine is also available locally at the health department, outpatient clinics, community flu shot clinics and pharmacies.
Students, faculty and staff at each school are encouraged to participate. It’s easy and anonymous! To learn when on-campus flu shot clinics are available and to compete, visit: nmu.edu/fight-the-flu and self-report once you have received your seasonal flu vaccine.
In mid-October, results will be posted and updated weekly on the webpage.
Follow on-going progress throughout the semester and take pride in protecting yourself and others by reducing the risk of flu illnesses this year.
