“Among over 3 million students, we have observed nearly 56,000 cases of ILI. But there have been only ninety-eight hospitalizations and no deaths, indicating this disease remains generally mild. It is somewhat surprising to see resurgence of disease in regions that had seen recent declines. This likely reflects the relative lack of natural immunity among young adults and students’ vulnerability to the infection. We remain concerned about the risk of exposure to vulnerable students on our campuses and their potential to infect those in their communities or their families who are at higher risk for complications, hospitalization, or worse. This recent return of flu helps reaffirm the importance of vaccination once it becomes available,” according to Dr. James C. Turner, president of the American College Health Association and executive director of the department of student health at the University of Virginia.
