Be Safe Cougs

Flu Shot Fridays

Flu season is approaching fast! You can help prevent the flu by getting your flu vaccine at one of Cougar Health Services’ Flu Shot Friday events or by making an appointment with your health care provider.

It’s important that you get your flu shot early in the season. After getting a flu vaccine, it takes about two weeks for your body to develop the antibodies that will protect you from flu virus.

Learn more about Flu Shot Fridays 2018 – Every Friday from September 28 to October 26.
