Flu Shots Available to Students at Multiple Campuses

flushotsIt’s getting to that time of year when cooler weather will start to impact our lives and our health. It is important to protect yourself and your family from the onset of any illnesses because, as you may have guessed, flu season is right around the corner.

To combat the onset of flu-related illness, Rasmussen College teamed up with local pharmacies and organizations to offer flu vaccinations on many of its campuses in September and October.

“Campuses are [really] hoping to promote and increase awareness for a healthier community and lifestyle,” said Brittany Allen, senior student advisor at Rasmussen College-Fort Myers.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends yearly vaccinations for everyone 6 months of age and older for optimal protection, as the flu virus evolves every year.

“The timing of flu is very unpredictable and can vary from season to season,” according to the CDC website.

Flu activity tends to hit the U.S. in January or February, but it can start as early as October and occur as late as May.

Below is a list of the many campuses that will be participating in the flu shot initiative. Be sure to check with your campus to find out the times and locations of the vaccinations.  

Minnesota campuses:

  • Eagan: Oct. 6
  • Mankato: Oct. 6
  • Bloomington: Oct. 6 

Florida campuses:

  • Ft. Myers: Sept. 8 & 10
  • Land O'Lakes: Sept. 9
