Dear Bates Students,

As of Tuesday evening, 115 cases of Influenza Like Illness (ILI) have been reported to Bates Health Services. In line with Maine CDC guidelines, all are being treated with H1N1 protocols. The recovery period is generally three to five days. There have been no complications to date.

As previously noted in e-mail, students who have not already been vaccinated are encouraged to sign up 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight at New Commons for the next vaccination clinic, which will be held from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday Oct. 15 at Chase Hall Lounge. The Thursday clinic will administer the remaining doses of the nasal-spray vaccine as well as injectable doses.
