The University of Vermont
Center for Health and Wellbeing
The Center for Health and Wellbeing will be offering the injectable form of the H1N1 vaccine this week to all UVM students, faculty, and staff. While we continue to see low rates of H1N1 infection in our region, it is quite possible that we’ll experience another wave of H1N1 infection this winter. If you have not yet received the vaccine, please strongly consider attending a clinic at the University or elsewhere to become immunized.
