Because some of the materials and equipment in these laboratories are hazardous or regulated, the Department of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) has designed a series of forms and guides to streamline the process. Information can be found here. Please contact us as soon as you know the approximate date of your lab move so that we can assist in the closeout of the lab. It is especially important that radioactive materials, controlled drugs used in research, and chemical and biological hazards be moved according to state and federal requirements. The lab closeout checklist can provide guidance.

A flu vaccination does not guarantee protection against the flu. Some people who get vaccinated might still get sick. However, people who get a flu vaccine are less likely to get sick with flu or hospitalized from flu than someone who does not get vaccinated.
The most important factors that affect how well the flu vaccine works include:
- The “match” between the flu vaccine and the flu viruses that are spreading that season; and
- Factors such as the age and overall health of the person being vaccinated. For example, older people with weaker immune systems may respond less well to vaccination.
