You’ll need to register yourself and each dependent you would like to receive a flu shot separately. A confirmation email will be sent for each appointment you schedule.

To get ready for your appointment:

  • Complete the consent form attached to your confirmation email ahead of time and bring it with you. This will speed up the process.
  • Bring your employee ID (if applicable). your insurance card and your appointment confirmation email (printed or digital)
  • We ask that you wear a mask while receiving your flu shot and while waiting in the vaccination area before or after your shot.
  • Arrive no more than 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment. This will help us keep vaccination spaces distanced.
  • Review the Vaccine Information Sheet prior to your appointment.
