If your student didn't already take advantage of the free flu shots available on campus, please encourage her to get immunized while home on break.
There has been a high number of reports of the flu in the community around Wellesley College, and immunization is one of the best ways to avoid the flu. Find a flu shot near you.
Send your student back to campus with a good supply of
antibacterial wipes for high touch surfaces where flu may live, like keyboards and phones
Ibuprofen (Advil) and Acetaminophen (Tylenol).
If your student develops influenza-type symptoms while on campus, she should come to the Health Services during walk-in hours or call x2810 and ask to speak with a nurse.
