Let's keep Wellesley flu-free!

1) If you haven't already been immunized, get a flu shot while you are home. The Health Service has a limited supplies of vaccine available on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

2) Whether or not you've been immunized, make sure you have a thermometer and good supply of Ibuprofen (Advil) or Acetominaphen (Tylenol) when you come back to campus.
 
3) Wash your hands frequently and practice cough courtesy - cough into your elbow or sleeve.  
 
4) If you have influenza-like symptoms (fever over 100F AND cough, or sore throat, runny nose, body aches, chills, or diarrhea/ vomiting), delay returning to campus until you're fever-free for at least 24 hours without taking medication. 
 
5) If you develop influenza-like symptoms while on campus, come to the Health Service during walk-in hours (see website) or call x2810 and ask to speak to a nurse.
