The University of Memphis Student Health Center highly recommends everyone get vaccinated to protect themselves and those around them against influenza. The immunization takes about 10 days for immunity to develop, so the sooner you are immunized, the better. Check with your doctor or another health care professional if you have questions about which vaccine you should get.
