Weekend flu shots available at retail locations

December 16, 2010

WorkLife Programs is announcing additional flu shot dates at retail locations for employees and spouses/same-sex domestic partners who have yet to get a seasonal flu shot.
Seasonal flu shot vendor Maxim Health Systems is offering flu shots from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 18-19) at area Marsh Supermarkets. Two Lafayette locations and one West Lafayette location are included.

A retail location coupon will be needed to obtain a flu shot at one of these events. To get a coupon, go to www.purdue.edu/worklife, log in using your career account and password, and click "Flu Shots." Bring your PUID to the appointment.
Additionally, walk-in flu shots continue to be given based on vaccine availability at Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH). The Urgent Care Center on the ground floor of PUSH will have flu shots available 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. There may be a wait time. Bring your PUID to PUSH.
All Purdue health plans cover the seasonal flu vaccine for employees and covered dependents. Employees may see their health care provider to obtain a seasonal flu shot for themselves or their child.
This year's seasonal flu shot contains the H1N1 vaccine, so only one shot will be needed.
