H1N1 Virus Updates

Flu Season has ended

As of March 2010, the flu season appears to be over; we have seen no new cases of H1N1 flu for some time.  Please check back during the 2010-11 academic year for the availability of new H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines.

Laudedale Center for Student Health and Counseling is proud to be participating in ACHA's Influenza Like Illnesses (ILI) Surveillance in College and Universities. 

Distinguising between Colds and Flu

INFLUENZA - sudden onset of fevers, chills, sweats, malaise (extreme fatigue), body aches, headache, cough and sore throat. Most of these symptoms start in the first 24 hours. Nasal congestion may follow in the next few days. Less common are nausea and diarrhea.

COMMON COLD - nasal congestion/runny nose, scratchy-irritated throat, low-grade fever with the onset of a cough in 2-3 days.
