Flu Advisory from the Wellness Center

Since extensive flu activity has been reported across the country, all students are encouraged to discuss the wisdom of getting a flu vaccine with their medical providers BEFORE returning to campus for the Spring 2013 semester.  Flu shots are in short supply in the Cobleskill area, and there is an extremely limited amount of vaccines available through the SUNY Cobleskill Wellness Center for $20 to  students only .  Please contact the Wellness Center at  x5225 to inquire.  Students who are experiencing flu-like symptoms (e.g. fever, chills, headache, sore throat, cough, nasal congestion, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue), who have not yet returned to school, are encouraged to contact the Office of the Vice President of Student Development at  x5214 and delay returning until they return to normal health.   Faculty and Staff are also encouraged to get flu shots locally or through their medical provider.  For more details about symptoms please go to the CDC website  and the New York State Department of Health website.
