We are posting this message to the community on behalf of URI Health Services
Rhode Island and much of the nation are experiencing widespread influenza as reported by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and media nationwide.
We urge all URI students, faculty and staff to obtain flu vaccination prior to returning to campus.
In Rhode Island and many other states the flu vaccine is being administered in local pharmacies as well as community clinics and physician offices.
Getting the shot NOW will do much to keep you and your friends healthy as we begin the spring semester.
