by Paula Van Brocklin

Flu shot clinic

205 TASF
Oct. 11-29, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
No appointment necessary

Roll up your sleeve. Flu season is fast approaching and Iowa State again is offering employees vaccinations at no cost. The good news is there's no need for two shots this year; the new vaccine includes both the H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines in one dose.

Occupational medicine staff will administer the flu shots while supplies last weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 11-29 in 205 Technical Administrative Service Facility (TASF). No appointment is necessary. Be sure to bring your ISU ID card or your university ID number to the shot clinic. Please note there is limited parking in front of TASF.

Flu shots will be provided at no cost for the following eligible groups:

  • Faculty
  • Merit
  • Professional and scientific
  • Contract employees
  • University Child Care (employees only)
  • Miscellaneous affiliate employees enrolled in ISU health plans (ISU Foundation, Iowa State Daily, Greek house directors). Some affiliate organizations will need to pay for their participating employees' vaccinations.
  • Retirees on university health plans who are not yet 65

Students, post docs and visiting scholars are not eligible to receive flu shots at the clinic in TASF. These individuals should contact the Thielen Student Health Center, 4-5801, for flu vaccine information.

Employees are encouraged to attend the clinic at their earliest convenience. For more information, call 4-0874.
