How does your university stack up?

Join us in a friendly competition this fall and winter. MDHHS is teaming up with colleges and universities to challenge students to get vaccinated against the flu.

By participating in this challenge, your institution will receive access to educational resources and programs, an award of participation, and a chance to win free registration to state immunization conferences. MDHHS will recognize high-performing schools with awards of excellence and announce the results via press release and social media channels. The 2016-2017 Challenge Materials will be updated as they are available.

Ensure your students are in class and ready to learn. Join us to plan a successful vaccination campaign at your institution!

If you are interested in participating, please contact Jalyn Ingalls at
