|As flu season sets in, we’re seeing a significant rise in respiratory illnesses on campus. Typically, infections begin to pick up around the holidays and peak in January and February. Rates of transmission are currently high in Texas and around the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are predicting a difficult flu season.
We highly recommend getting vaccinated. This season’s flu vaccine continues to be a good match for circulating strains.
Other respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, are also circulating, so it’s also a good idea to get boosted. Both the flu and COVID vaccines are available at the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center and can both be administered during the same appointment.
Nobody wants to be sick, especially during the holiday season. Contact us today to make an appointment. Please schedule online or call 214-768-2141.
