Free Flu Shots Across NAIT Campus
By Bailey O'Boyle on October 27, 2017
Supervisor of NAIT Health Services, Christine Bannerman, says students are at a higher risk of illness on campus. “Because students , right now, are getting towards exam time. Midterms exams. So students are staying up late, they probably not eating all that well, they’re probably not testing because they’re worried about exams. So your immune system is a little bit compromised. And when it’s compromised, when something like the flu hits you, it’ll hit you with a bang.”
Students are also advised to cough into their elbows, wash their hands and if they feel ill, to stay home if their program allows.
