What can I do to protect myself against influenza?

The primary defense against influenza is immunization. Each fall, seasonal flu vaccine is available on campus to University students, faculty, and staff.

Members on the Morningside campus may visit the Columbia Health Flu page for information about getting an annual flu vaccinne. 

Preventive hygiene, such as covering your cough and washing your hands, is also among the foremost protective measures everyone can take.
