Ebola Travel Advisory

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed the first case of Ebola in the United States, in Dallas TX. Student Health would like to use this as a reminder that a travel advisory remains in place for all nonessential travel to West Africa. If you have plans to travel to this region, please review the Ebola Fact Sheet found on the Student Health website http://studenthealth.mst.edu/media/studentsupport/studenthealth/documents/SHS%20-%20Ebola%20Advisory.pdf. Check for additional updates at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/.

Flu Vaccines to Arrive Soon

If you have pre-ordered a flu vaccine from Student Health, you will be contacted when they arrive at the clinic. Student Health has ordered the quadrivalent vaccine, which protects against four types of influenza and does not contain the preservative thimerosal. The traditional vaccine has only protected against three varieties of influenza. If you have not ordered your flu shot, there is time to do so before flu season is upon us. There are no confirmed cases of influenza on campus yet, but don’t wait. Contact mstshs@mst.edu to reserve yours today.
