How to Protect Yourself During Flu Season
Winter is coming, which only means one thing... flu season! Those students who are pursuing a career in health care are required to get a flu vaccination. Why?

The reason for vaccinations against the flu is because it's easily transmitted from person-to-person, as well as from inanimate objects such as tabletops, cell phones, door knobs, keyboards, etc.
