Why Give Blood?
There is no substitute for blood. It has to come from one person in order to give to another. A critical number of voluntary donations are required every day to meet the need for blood in the areas we serve.
Questions and Comments:
If you have any questions about donating blood, please contact Unyts at 512-7940 or visit their web site at http://www.unyts.org. If you have any questions about the blood drive, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Health Services 839-8446.
More than 200,000 people are hospitalized from seasonal flu-related complications every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. Most healthy adults may be able to infect other people beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to five to seven days after becoming sick.
Flu vaccines can reduce flu illnesses, doctor’s visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. Everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as current season’s vaccines are available.
The Health & Insurance Services office hosts several flu shot clinics throughout the fall each year.
