Health Services Update
The 2017 seasonal influenza season is just beginning to peak. If your student has not yet received a flu shot, it is not too late. Please encourage them to get vaccinated as soon as possible or upon returning to campus at St. Thomas Health Services. Flu shots will be submitted to your student’s health insurance. The flu shot will help ensure your student’s second semester gets off to a healthy start and will assist us in keeping the greater community healthy as well.
Travel Related Illnesses
Many students may soon be returning from exciting study, volunteer or travel abroad experiences. If your student becomes ill during or within the first three months after their travels abroad, encourage them to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Health Service’s Travel Clinic addresses post-travel illness as well as pre-travel care. You will find additional information regarding St. Thomas Travel Health Services on our website or by contacting Health Services at 651-962-6750.
