What's New At Honors: 10-09-2018

DON'T LET FLU or MENINGITIS BUG UMASS! Flu season is almost here, and so are the University Health Services (UHS) campus flu clinics. Help protect our UMass community by getting vaccinated, it's quick and easy!

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend that everyone over the age of six months be vaccinated against flu. UHS flu clinics are open to all members of the campus community - students, faculty and staff!

NEW THIS YEAR: Due to last year's meningitis B invasive cases it remains very important that all undergraduate students get vaccinated. UHS will be offering the meningococcal B vaccine (Bexsero or Trumemba) to undergraduate students at these clinics. Students, please remember to bring documentation of your first dose(s) if you got it off campus! For more information go here.
