Tell College Students: It's Not Too Late to Vaccinate!

Influenza activity is on the rise both nationwide and throughout Michigan. Public health officials are noticing an increase in patients of all ages being admitted to hospitals for serious influenza disease. To date, a larger proportion of these hospitalizations are occurring in young and middle-age adults as compared with most influenza seasons.

The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) asks physicians to help spread the word about this important vaccine to college-age students by using the materials in its College & University Flu Vaccination Toolkit, including:

  • Strategies to increase rates
  • Key messages
  • E-mail templates
  • News release templates
  • Social media messages
  • Websites and resources
  • Posters and flyers (attached separately)
