An annual flu vaccination is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control for anyone age six months or older, and Western wants our faculty, staff and their families to stay healthy during this upcoming flu season.
As part of Western’s Wise & Well U program, the Benefits Department will hold a flu shot clinic on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 8-9, for employees and families, and each year more than 500 employees and their family members participate.
To make this as convenient as possible, pharmacists from Fred Meyer will be on-site at the Viking Union, Room 565 A/B/C to administer the vaccinations.
If you are covered by the Uniform Medical Plan or the Kaiser Classic or Value plan, there will be no cost to you; just provide your ID card 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 $25.
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, employee ID #, and the completed Vaccine Administration Record (go here to review and print out) form.
To receive your immunization, you will need to book an appointment using Fred Meyer’s online scheduler here; see images below for tips on using the scheduler.
