Annual Seasonal Flu Clinic for Faculty/Staff and Dependents

Seasonal influenza (“flu”) is a highly contagious viral illness marked by fever, muscle aches, cough, headache and fatigue. These symptoms often have a dramatically sudden onset and the illness usually lasts seven to ten days. Although influenza typically improves without complications, certain individuals, especially those with underlying medical problems including asthma or diabetes may develop complications, such as pneumonia. Ear infections and sinusitis may also develop with or following influenza.

The most effective preventative measure against seasonal flu is being immunized with seasonal flu vaccine.

It is especially important for individuals (especially those at risk for flu complications) to be immunized with seasonal flu vaccine. 

The Davison Health Center and Department of Human Resources is sponsoring a Seasonal Flu Clinic for faculty, staff and their dependents, as well as students.  Flu shots are free to all employees, retirees and graduate students who are eligible to be enrolled in a CIGNA health plan and their dependents *9 years of age and older.

Hartford VNA Healthcare will provide the clinical services and staff and Health Center staff will assist with clerical duties.

Information about the flu, flu vaccine, and notice of privacy practice can be found below by clicking on the appropriate link.  For faster service the day of the clinic, please print off and complete the Influenza Immunization Permission sheet and bring with you to the clinic.  Copies will also be available at the clinic site. Registration is not required.

Please wear a short sleeve shirt for ease of access to your arm.
