Schedule a Flu Shot Session for Your Group
UHealth annual influenza vaccination is a safety priority and in the best interest of our patients and our employees. We are asking everyone in the UHealth community to get a flu shot. We can come to you!
For large departments, one of the best ways to get to compliance quickly is to organize a vaccination session dedicated to your group. For this program, you’ll need 10 or more people to participate.
Environmental Health has already done dozens of group sessions and has dozens more on the schedule. Richard J. Cote, M.D., professor and Joseph R. Coulter, Jr. Endowed Chair in Pathology, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, and Director of BioNIUM, has this to say about the value of group vaccinations: “Since the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine is located in multiple areas across the Medical Campus, we organized several dates and times for our faculty, staff, residents and fellows to get their flu vaccination, including at our monthly faculty meeting and residents/fellows meeting, and at our various lab sites. We had a fantastic turnout and the team from Environmental Health were very accommodating to our schedules. All of the events were a success! This was our third year to organize this and we will definitely continue doing this.”
If you don’t have a large group or do not want to organize a group event, you can access information on locations and schedules here.
All the information you need about the seasonal flu vaccine is on the Environmental Health site here.
The most important thing you can do to protect your health — and that of others — this fall and winter is to get a flu shot now. Thank you for your contribution to keeping our patients, families and those who support them safe.
