Fall Flu Shot Clinic

A Wise & Well U

October 10-11, 2017

VU 565 A/B/C

 

An annual flu vaccination is recommended by the CDC for anyone age six months or older, and Western wants our faculty and staff to stay healthy during this upcoming flu season. 

A Wise & Well U will hold a Flu Shot Clinic on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 10-11, for employees and families.  To make this as convenient as possible, Rite Aid pharmacists will be on-site at the Viking Union 565 A/B/C to administer the vaccinations. If you are covered by the Uniform Medical Plan or the Kaiser WA Classic or Value plan, there will be no cost to you.  You will just need to provide ID card and screening questionnaire to the on-site pharmacist that is providing your flu shot.  If you are paying out of pocket, then the price of the flu shot will be discounted to $23 per trivalent flu shot and $74 per high dose flu shot (cash or check). 

Please see the link below to the online registration site to reserve your appointment today. Be sure to enter Western"s zip code (98225) when registering.  You will need to bring your insurance card, form of ID, and the completed Screening Questionnaire to your appointment.  A link to the form is provided on the registration website. 

Helpful Hints:

1.       The website is simply a scheduling tool.  Please bring your insurance card, form of ID,and completed Screening questionnaire with you to your appointment.

2.      The fastest way to get through the line will be to have your screening questionnaire completed, signed, and a copy of your insurance card stapled to it.
