FLU SHOT DAY!
University Health Services (UHS) will be administering FREE flu vaccinations to all UTHSC students, employees, post-docs, residents, and retirees.
You must present your ID badge – no exceptions.
Proof of shot will be provided.
Date: Tuesday, October 9, 2014 Time: 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Where: Madison Plaza Lobby
The Fluvirin (trivalent) vaccine will be administered.
Also, we are excited to announce that PharmaJet, the maker of a unique needle-free jet injection technology, will be present to provide you with an opportunity to experience an alternative to the normal needle injection that we have historically provided for the flu event. PharmaJet is safe, easy, comfortable and fast. There is no needle and the injection occurs in less than 1/10th of a second. The company has recently received an FDA clearance from CDRH for delivery of the bioCSL Afluria influenza vaccine. 500 doses will be available. More information and demonstrations will be available on Flu Shot Day and also on our website at www.uthsc.edu/univheal.
If you are unable to attend this event, flu shots will be available by appointment at UHS AFTER October 9th. No shots will be given prior to this date.
Please call 901-448-5630 to schedule or if you need any additional information.
Sponsored by: University Health Services, College of Pharmacy, the Office of Student Life, APhA-ASP, and the SGAEC.
