OSU Lima holds Flu Vaccine Blitz

Ohio State University at Lima is helping their students stay as healthy as possible this winter. 

Ohio State Total Health and Wellness hosted by a Flu Vaccine Blitz for students. While elderly and very young people are the most susceptible to having the flu turn into something more serious, college students are in a unique situation that puts them at risk as well.

"College students do have risk," said Alice Teal, a nurse practitioner with Ohio State Total Health and Wellness. "Part of that is because they are around each other. College students, especially if they live in a dorm or they live in an apartment, because they live in close quarters they are at risk for getting the flu."

Teal says getting vaccinated will also help protect your friends and families, as well as whoever you may cross on the street to avoid the flu this season.
