The assistant director, Kathryn Steward informed students that the university is experiencing a large number of positive flu cases. The Graves Gilbert campus is well stocked with flu vaccines.
The state of Kentucky is recommending people get flu shots up until April. There will be 100% protection from the flu after two weeks.
