Competition Background & Overview
In an effort to further protect our campus communities throughout the region, the Center for Rural Health at Northern Michigan University is bringing universities throughout the U.P. together to “Fight the Flu”. Students, staff and faculty from Finlandia University, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Technological University and Northern Michigan University are competing to see which school can get the highest percentage of its total population vaccinated against the flu.
The winning school will receive a trophy, but best of all, bragging rights.
Where to get vaccinated
In addition to upcoming scheduled flu shot clinics on campus, the vaccine is also available locally at the health department, outpatient clinics, community flu shot clinics and pharmacies.
