|Be a Flu Fighter: Take the shot, knock out the flu|
A yearly seasonal flu vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu. Each year in the United States, on average, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized and 36,000 people die from seasonal flu complications. The flu will slow you down and force you to miss work, class, and your favorite daily activities, and no one has time for that. UND Student Health Services will be offering flu shot clinics across campus for your convenience.
