Encourage your student to get a free flu shot from Boynton

Flu shot clinics will be held at a variety of locations across campus between now and November 30th.

Dr. Ed Ehlinger, director of Boynton Health Service, said that although flu season is generally considered to last from November through April, students often get sick earlier in the season because "they are generally busier, exposed to more people, and engage in stressful activities like smoking and drinking," according to today's Minnesota Daily.

Encourage your student to find a time and location that is convenient and to receive a flu shot before coming for Thanksgiving.
