UCF Athletes Set Example While Getting Protected Against Flu
Date:9/30/2009

ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- In light of recent flu activity in university athletic departments across the nation, nearly 200 University of Central Florida (UCF) athletes got protected against the seasonal flu preceding Centra Care's mass vaccination event at the UCF Arena, today. UCF students from men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, track, golf, tennis and other UCF Athletic teams came out to set an example to the rest of the student body and community about the importance of getting vaccinated against seasonal influenza.

While many of the university-reported flu cases are said to be the H1N1 virus, Seasonal flu can pose great risks on its own. Centra Care/Florida Hospital Urgent Care's president and senior medical director, Scott Brady, MD, says the danger escalates if you contract both Seasonal and H1N1 influenza viruses and strongly recommends an annual, seasonal flu shot, as well as the H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available. "BOTH Seasonal & H1N1 viruses will be around this Fall - and it's very possible to be infected with BOTH at the same time. When this happens, your chances for complications greatly increase," says Dr. Brady.

UCF will attempt to break the Guinness World Record For 'Most Vaccines in an 8-hour Day' at today's event which began with the athletes at 11:00 A.M. The record 3,271 vaccinations is held by Centra Care & Get Healthy Florida, UCF's partners in today's event; UCF hopes to add their name to the Guinness World Record status.

UCF Health Services and Centra Care united for today's event to protect thousands of UCF students, staff & faculty members, and the surrounding community against the seasonal flu.
