The Flu Arrives at U.Va.: You Can Still Get a Flu Shot
Influenza has arrived at the University. If you have not gotten a flu shot yet, Student Health still has plenty of vaccine and will be offering flu shots Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and from 2 to 4 p.m. A limited supply of the intranasal flu vaccine also is available if you do not want an injection.
Influenza peaks between late December and early March. It is recommended that you receive the new vaccine annually since it is designed for the different strains of flu that are predicted each year.
For more information about the flu, call 982-3915 and ask to speak with a triage nurse in General Medicine.
Don’t get sick for the holidays. Come to Student Health and protect yourself from the risk of getting the flu.
Be on your Guard! Impersonation of ITC Staff Reported!
Two students have reported receiving phone calls from someone claiming to work for the University’s Information Technology & Communication Department (ITC). The caller accused the students of misusing their computer accounts and asked for their account passwords. ITC *never* asks for passwords over the phone. If you receive a similar call, hang up and send an e-mail concerning the incident to firstname.lastname@example.org.
