FAQs about immunizations

This semester, Student Health is seeing a lot of students with Strep Throat.  Sore throats can have a variety of causes. Viruses, bacteria, allergens, environmental irritants (such as cigarette smoke), chronic postnasal drip and fungi can all cause that unpleasant, scratchy and sometimes painful condition known as a sore throat. While many sore throats will heal without treatment, some throat infections—including strep throat—may need antibiotic treatment.
