You're on your own, figuring out this "adulting" thing, and pursuing your goals and dreams. But have you checked that you're protected from vaccine-preventable diseases?
Be proactive about your health by getting vaccinated. Learn what vaccines you need and how to get vaccinated. Your health and future are worth protecting!
To keep yourself and others safe and healthy, it's important for college students to get both the COVID-19 vaccine and the flu vaccine this year. You can get both of these vaccines from several convenient locations - including your campus health center, pharmacies, and the local health department - and you can even get both of them at the same time! Getting vaccinated is easy, safe, and will help keep you and your friends from getting sick.
It's extra important to ensure you stay up-to-date on vaccinations in college because you're living in smaller spaces like dorm rooms, learning in large classes, and meeting people from across the state, country and globe! Thankfully, campus health centers, local health departments, and pharmacies close to campuses make it super easy to get your needed immunizations.
