Students can also call Norris at 229-4716 to make an appointment for a flu shot.  National, state and local public health authorities recommend that all people 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine.  By getting vaccinated you can protect yourself from getting ill and avoid spreading influenza to others in your household, your classroom, and your workplace.
