College students need a flu shot!

Every year the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly recommends a flu vaccine as we head into the influenza season. Our state health department is reporting an uptick in the number of influenza cases in college-aged individuals.

COVID-19 Vaccines for International Students

We have gotten a few questions from international students and those who've been home and received a COVID-19 vaccine in their home country, regarding the need to re-vaccinate when they get here to the UI.

Get your COVID-19 booster

The CDC recommends COVID-19 booster vaccines for anyone age 16 and over. If you got your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna at least 6 months ago, or a dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 2 months ago, you SHOULD get a booster shot.
