The most effective way to protect against the flu is to get a yearly flu vaccine. The CDC recommends that people get the flu vaccine by the end of October.
The Health Center strongly encourages parents to schedule an appointment for their children to get the flu vaccine as soon as possible. For many, a great time to schedule that appointment is on the upcoming no-class Saturday or over Thanksgiving break. Please be advised that the Peddie Health Center does not schedule appointments or drives for students to receive the flu vaccine.
