Flu Vaccine and Prevention Information

Prevention and Precautions: Make your appointment to get a flu shot at CSU Health & Wellness Services by calling x3649. The flu vaccine is the best way to prevent and control the flu. 

Minimize exposure risk to viral and bacterial upper respiratory infections:

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Drink plenty of water. Other beverages, e.g. those containing caffeine or alcohol are diuretic, and detract from your body's hydration.
  • Avoid respiratory irritants, including smoking.
  • Eat Nutritiously.
  • Get adequate rest.
  • Humidify living quarters, especially sleeping areas.
  • Manage Stress

If you do succumb to any upper respiratory infection and have symptoms of a respiratory illness or want to prevent getting one- use Universal Respiratory Etiquette Please:

  • Use tissue to cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, or cough onto your sleeve instead of your hand.
  • Dispose of tissues in the trash can immediately after use.
  • Use hand sanitizer after you blow our nose, cough or sneeze.
  • Try to sit atleast 3 feet away from others in common areas.
  • Minimize exposure to others- not just to prevent passing your symptoms to others, but to avoid new exposures to your already weakened
    immune system.
  • Schedule an appointment at Health and Wellness Services if you have a fever with temperature over 101 F for longer than 2 days.
