Flu season is coming!

This year, to protect our patients and ourselves, we're conducting numerous flu vaccination fairs with expanded hours covering all shifts at all of our Medical Center campuses. We call these events “Flupalooza” and they are meant to more efficiently provide vaccinations during flu season, which runs only from October through December.

The Fall 2014 Flupalooza schedule is posted below and will be announced in News & Views. Note: vaccination at the Flupalooza events is highly encouraged as flu shots will not be available through Employee Health Services (EHS). This will allow EHS staff to meet the many health needs of all our employees.

Student Health Services will NOT be holding flu clinics this year.  All clinics will be held by employee health on the following dates:
