keeping you informed

Campus status

Since the start of the 2009–2010 school year, fewer than 50 Case Western Reserve University students have sought treatment from University Health Services for confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza. These students include undergraduates and graduates, and those living on and off campus. Some appear to have contracted the illness while traveling. These students are limiting their contact with others and appear to be recovering without complications.

The university and its Emerging Infections Committee continue to monitor conditions and communicate with the campus community regularly to keep students, faculty and staff informed and to give them easy access to additional resources.

H1N1 vaccinations

The university administered more than 2,700 H1N1 nasal vaccinations to the campus community this fall. Information on additional opportunities to receive the nasal vaccine in Cuyahoga Country is available from University Health Services.

The university received 1,000 doses of the shot vaccine in December and will be administering them on a first-come, first-served basis during campus clinics December 11 and 14.

Due to the national shortage of seasonal flu vaccines, Case Western Reserve has had to suspend its seasonal flu vaccination offerings.
