College Flu Shot

If your kid is in college, it would be beneficial for him or her to get a flu shot.  Researchers from the University of Minnesota studied 13,000 college students from two campuses over four flu seasons.  They found the students who were vaccinated against the flu were significantly less likely to get the flu than those not vaccinated.  Vaccinated students also went to the doctor for fewer flu-like illnesses, had fewer academic problems and missed fewer days of class during flu seasons.
