Seasonal flu shots for employees Sept. 8-28

Seasonal flu shots will be provided again this year to eligible Iowa State employees. Flu immunizations will be given Monday-Friday (10 a.m.-4 p.m. beginning Sept. 8 in 205 TASF (Technical Administrative Service Facility). The clinic will run through Sept. 28 or until the supply of seasonal flu vaccine is gone.

Remember your I.D.

Occupational medicine employees will administer the immunizations to ISU employees on a first-come, first-served basis. Associate director of human resource services Mike Otis said he encourages employees not to wait too long if they intend to get a flu shot. He said this year's supply, while larger than last year's, is limited to 3,400 doses of the vaccine. Employees should:

  • Bring their ISU ID cards or university ID numbers with them. They'll need their number to check in prior to receiving a shot.
  • Plan to walk to the clinic, if possible. There is very limited parking in front of TASF.
