Help prevent influenza at your college and university! 

Alana's Foundation with support from MDHHS is hosting a friendly competition to challenge Michiganders 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. Alana's Foundation will recognize high-performing schools with awards of excellence and announce the results via press release and social media channels. Find the 2019-2020 Challenge Materials below. Join us to plan a successful vaccination campaign at your institution! 

Again this year, the Flu Challenge will be opened to a national audience which allows Michigan schools to see how they stack up against colleges and universities across the country. Undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and fans are invited to participate. Anyone is eligible to complete the self-report survey on behalf of their affiliated institution after they have been vaccinated against the flu. See the Rules and Regulations document below for more information about the expanded audience. If you are interested in participating, please contact Michelle Doebler at DoeblerM@michigan.gov.
