Yes, flu fighters, it’s that time of the year again! Flu season is just around the corner, meaning it’s almost time to get your annual flu vaccination. The good news is that it’s quick, easy, and free to receive your flu vaccination through the University Employee Health Clinic (UEHC).
All employees and volunteers are required to participate in the campaign. You must receive the influenza vaccine (from the University Employee Health Clinic or elsewhere) or decline it in ReadySet in order to comply.
This year’s campaign goals are to have 95% of employees vaccinated and 100% campaign compliance.
