Flu Precautions

With the semester under way, college administrators and students should be prepared for flu season. College students are a particularly vulnerable population for exposure to the Flu.

UVU starts vaccinations in the fall, before flu season.

H1N1 for 2014: Originally called “swine flu” because the virus genes were similar to some influenza viruses that infect pigs, the new virus has been named “novel H1N1.”
