In an ongoing effort to provide information to our students,faculty and staff we have established the NOVA H1N1 Hotline. If you don’t feel like searching through the website for information on the College’s status, tips on preventing flu infection and more, then call 703-764-7393. There is a pre-recorded message that will be updated as the situation changes.
Who should receive the novel H1N1 vaccine? On July 29, 2009, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, an advisory committee to CDC, recommended that the H1N1 flu vaccine be made available first to the following five groups:
Health care workers and emergency medical responders
People caring for infants under 6 months of age
Children and young adults from 6 months to 24 years
People aged 25 to 64 years with underlying medical conditions (e.g. asthma, diabetes)
Please remember to get your “flu” Shots as reccomended by the Centers for Disease Control
