UNM Students click here for H1N1 vaccination information from Student Health & Counseling.

The University of New Mexico is working hard to protect your student . Many different groups have been working for several months to assure that all bases are covered for this flu season.  Flu planning efforts have been included in the University’s on-going, all-hazards preparedness activities.

Most individuals will not need to seek medical attention for the flu.  If one has an underlying, chronic medical condition, they should consult a physician.  If one has difficulty keeping fluids down for 24 hours, or if they have a fever of 100° Fahrenheit or 37.8° Celsius or higher which cannot be reduced with medication, they should consult a physician. In addition, a person should seek medical care if they experience shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or if a fever continues more than three days. For parents with a young child who is ill, seek medical care if a child has fast or labored breathing, continuing fever or convulsions (seizures).

UNM Faculty has been encouraged not to request doctor’s notes for potential H1N1 cases that do not otherwise need to seek medical care, due to the potential overload this could create in our medical facilities.

Students residing in Campus Housing should notify their roommate/suitemate/Resident Advisor/House Responsible Party that they do not feel well.  They should help the student make arrangements (food/medicine delivery) to isolate themselves for 24 hours and check in on the student to be sure that they don’t need additional assistance.

Please check the student's section to view your child's information as well.
