2012 FLU SHOT CLINIC
Mark your calendars for Oct. 18! The 2012 free flu shot clinic will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Bridge Lounge, MLK Jr. Union. CMS requires state employees to present their state health insurance card and Panther Card at time of service.

RETIREES are required to present their health insurance card and two types of ID. If the retiree has Medicare, they need only to bring their Medicare card. Spouses of state employees are not eligible for the free vaccine. However, for a $30 charge, spouses of employees may get their flu shots at these clinics.

Remember to wear clothing that allows access to the upper arm.
