Widespread Influenza Across New York

News, Announcement

The Health Services Center is seeing an increase in the volume of students with the flu—including both resident and commuter students. The flu is widespread throughout most of the United States, which is typical for this time of year.

If you are experiencing flu symptoms (fever over 100°F, body aches and cough), please schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner by calling 516.877.6000 or follow up with your healthcare provider. 

Flu shots are still available here at Health Services by appointment for $15 and locally at pharmacies.

Remember that hand washing, covering your mouth when you cough and staying home if you are ill is our best defense in preventing the spread of the flu to others.
