Flu Vaccine 

We will receive the Flu Vaccine for 2024-2025 in the Fall. 

Vaccination History Requirement Change

As of May 2023, Northern Michigan no longer requires documentation of a student's vaccination history.  A resource to learn more about vaccinations is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website where there is information about vaccinations for teens (13-18) and adults (19 and older), as well as vaccinations in general.

Mask Requirement Update

Masks are not required for the NMU Health Center, but please do ask for one if you are having upper respiratory (Flu, COVID, RSV type symptoms, even if you are COVID negative), if you have had close contact with someone with Flu, COVID or RSV. Please note that our clinical staff may still wear masks when in direct contact with patients.

Thank you for your cooperation.
