Fight the Flu This Season

October 11, 2011, Volume 58, No. 07

Having the flu is never pleasant. To help you prepare for this year’s flu season, the Division of Human Resources is partnering with Occupational Medicine to provide flu shots on campus at a discounted cost for full- and part-time Penn faculty and staff. Keep in mind you must pre-register online to receive a flu shot.

When can I get a flu shot?

•  Monday, November 7, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

•  Tuesday, November 8, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

•  Tuesday, November 15, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

How do I pre-register for a flu shot?
Visit www.hr.upenn.edu/quality/wellness/flushots.aspx and follow the step-by-step instructions. You can register up until the day before the date you select. But time slots fill up quickly, so you’re encouraged to pre-register as soon as possible.

Where can I get a flu shot?
The shots will be administered at three convenient locations—the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), the Wharton School, and the School of Nursing. You’ll see the exact locations when you pre-register online.

Receipt/proof of immunization will be provided (as will UPHS ID badge notification stickers if necessary).

Additionally, CVS MinuteClinics and Walgreens Take Care Clinics are partnering to provide a comprehensive flu immunization program. Get more details on the HR website at www.hr.upenn.edu/quality/wellness/flushots.aspx

What do I need to bring to the flu shot site?
•  $25 cash and your PennCard

Remember to wear clothes that provide easy access to your upper arm. 

Contact HR at (215) 898-5116 or suzsmith@upenn.edu if you have questions.
