This year, more than ever, it’s worth a shot to stay healthy and prevent the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending flu shots for all persons over 6 months of age. In other words, all Emory students should receive a flu shot annually. Influenza is a danger to many people each year, especially to those with chronic illnesses such as asthma and diabetes.

In addition, flu symptoms are very similar to COVID, so higher flu activity will challenge the health care system if we do not control the flu to the fullest extent possible. Our infectious disease experts, Drs. Colleen Kraft and Carlos Del Rio, ALWAYS receive their flu vaccines to protect themselves and others. Join the fight against the flu, and get your flu shot today!

Info for Faculty and Staff

Information for Faculty and Staff

While we always encourage our faculty and staff to get a flu vaccine every year, it is even more critical this particular flu season because of the added complexities brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Emory faculty and staff have several options for getting a free flu shot. Learn how.


To prevent the spread of influenza, the CDC recommends the following strategies: 

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Practice physical distancing and wear face coverings.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone, except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
  • If you are sick with a flu-like illness, seek medical evaluation early to determine whether the symptoms are from flu or COVID-19.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated.
