2017 Influenza Prevention
Flu can affect anyone, but several lifestyle factors of University students can put them at increased risk of contracting the flu. These factors may included: close contact in places such as residence halls, classrooms, public transportation, parties, and sporting events. Further, lack of sleep, unhealthy eating, and irregular exercise can weaken the immune system, making college students more vulnerable to the flu.
Flu outbreaks can have an impact on a student's academic performance. On average, when a college student gets the flu, they experience illness for eight or more days causing them to possibly miss class and get behind on assignments.
