How to Participate

Students, staff and faculty who have received (or plan to receive) their flu vaccination at campus sponsored flu shot clinic events are not required to self-report. The Universities will be providing the number of vaccinations distributed in totality periodically throughout the competition and the leader board will be updated accordingly. 

Individuals who receive their flu vaccination elsewhere such as from their personal primary care provider, the health department, pharmacy, a community sponsored event, etc. are encouraged to anonymously self-report.
