Flu, Pandemics, and H1N1

The college has created a webpage and emailed all students with information about the H1N1 flu, and steps the college is taking to prevent new cases and minimize the impact of any cases that do arise on campus. The library has put together a variety of books and resources on the flu, epidemics, and pandemics throughout history to provide more information – check out the display by the reference desk on the 1st floor of the library.

You can also find out more about H1N1 at the following websites:

WHO (World Health Organization) H1N1 Page

MA Office of Health & Human Services H1N1 Page

EBSCOhost H1N1 – A collection of resources from EBSCO

Original Title: B00528-Swine flu.tifA Free Seasonal Flu Clinic, for students only, will be held on Thursday, October 22, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at Health Services in the Anthony Building. Given that the college has only received half of our requested shipment, the number of available doses is limited. Those with asthma, diabetes or any chronic condition that impairs the immune system are strongly encouraged to arrive at the clinic when it opens so you will be guaranteed a shot.
