Free flu shots available at Center for Healthy Living in October and November

The Center for Healthy Living is providing free flu shots by appointment for all benefits-eligible employees, plus spouses/same-sex domestic partners (SSDPs) who are covered on a Purdue medical plan.

Appointments are available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, Oct. 4 through Nov. 8. To schedule, eligible individuals should call the center at 49-40111.

The Center for Healthy Living is located in the Purdue West Shopping Center at 1400 W. State St. Free parking is available, and no permit is needed.

The center does not provide flu shots for children. However, employees, spouses/SSDPs and children who are covered on a Purdue medical plan have two ways to get a free flu shot aside from going to the Center for Healthy Living.

* Go to a retail pharmacy: A list of covered locations is available at www.purdue.edu/hr/Benefits/Medical/fluShots.html. Those getting a flu shot through a retail location will need to show their Cigna ID card.

* Go to their health care provider: All Purdue medical plans cover seasonal flu shots for covered employees and family members.

Employees who have questions about flu shot coverage may contact Human Resources at 49-42222 or hr@purdue.edu.
