Final Faculty/Staff Flu Shot Clinic Tuesday

UHD staff and faculty who missed the September Flu Shot Clinic will have a second chance Tuesday to take advantage of the convenience of getting immunized at work.

All employees who participate in the HealthSelect of Texas medical insurance plan can stop by the UHD Special Events Center (A300) between 3 and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 21 to get a flu shot at no additional cost.

Flu shots are available on a first come, first served basis. The clinician will administer the Fluvirin vaccine. Please register online to ensure availability of vaccines.

In addition to registering online, make sure to:

  1. Print and complete a Vaccine Administration Record (VAR) Consent form.
  2. Write your medical insurance Member ID and Group Number on the back of the VAR form.
  3. Bring the completed Vaccine Administration Record (VAR) Consent form and your UnitedHealthcare HealthSelect insurance card to the clinic.

Influenza ("flu") is a contagious disease that spreads around the United States every winter, usually between Oct. and May. Early vaccination can prevent the flu. For more information on the flu vaccine, please visit Walgreen's flu shot website.
