H1N1 Flu and Mary Baldwin

August 28, 2009

UPDATE 4 November 2009:
H1N1 Vaccine not yet available at Mary Baldwin … but it’s still coming

Mary Baldwin University still has plans to administer the H1N1 influenza vaccine to Mary Baldwin students, employees, and their families as soon as possible under a long-standing agreement with the Central Shenandoah Health District. Unfortunately the college has not yet been given a specific date to expect a supply of the vaccine. When we have more information, students and employees will be notified via e-mail and this Web site.

Mary Baldwin University urges all students, faculty, and staff to take precautions
against the novel H1N1 influenza (formerly called the swine flu), which has
spread around the globe. In North America, it was first detected in April
2009. With the beginning of school and the advent of flu season, it may begin
to spread more rapidly in North America. While the majority of U.S. cases
to date have been relatively mild, and no cases have been reported at Mary
Baldwin, the H1N1 flu can in some cases be serious, resulting in hospitalization
or death. Because there is virtually no immunity to this flu within the population,
the college community should be exceptionally vigilant in preventing its
spread.
