Health Questions?

Flu Vaccine

Living in close contact with many others can lead to rapid spread of influenza, which typically sickens college students for eight days or more, so it's important to get vaccinated each year.

Nazareth has completed 3 flu clinics this semester with Wegmans Pharmacy.

If you still need a flu shot, you can get a flu shot at any pharmacy.  Bring your Insurance card with you.
