Flu Shot Clinics 2022

Posted on by Whole U. This entry was posted in Promotions, Staying Healthy, Whole U Program Information. Bookmark the permalink.

The Whole U is partnering with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association to offer flu shot clinics across our campuses this October.

Everyone attending a clinic must register for an appointment with SVNA.

Faculty and staff: Those enrolled in UW-provided PEBB health plans (Uniform Medical and Kaiser), plus graduate students enrolled in the Graduate Appointee Insurance Program (GAIP), can obtain a free annual flu shot as allowed under the plans’ preventive care coverage.

If you are not insured by UW, follow the steps to make an appointment to see if your insurance is accepted by SVNA. If not, you can choose to pay $50 out of pocket through the online form.

Students: Students are welcome to attend any flu shot clinics. When registering for your appointment, enter your insurance information. If you are not insured, you can pay $50 out of pocket on the online form.

UW Medicine employees: UW Employee Health offers clinics at the UW medical centers for medical center staff. Please refer to your hospital employee health department for information about medical center clinics.

2 Thoughts on “Flu Shot Clinics 2022”

This new type of flu vaccine administration plan, where there is only one day at different locations seems very difficult, especially for people who only come in to work on certain days. Only one day at the Montlake building to vaccinate thousands? Seriously?? The lack of drop in clinics at the main hospital is frustrating. I feel that it is going to make compliance more difficult and is going to make more employees have to look into the community to get their shot which is just one more burden in our already hectic lives. Why change something that worked well in the past?

    Hi Karen, these flu shot clinics are offered to help non-medical center faculty and staff across the University of Washington have convenient access to influenza vaccines. They are not the official UW Medical Center influenza clinics for UW Medical Center staff, which are offered by UWMC Employee Health and will begin on Oct. 3 alongside a full campaign across the hospital. You can visit the UWMC Employee Health intranet webpage or call 206.598.4848 for more information on the UW Medical Center Clinics. All UW Medical Center employees should look to UW Medical Center Employee Health for your influenza vaccine.

    These clinics hosted by The Whole U have historically only been hosted at the Health Sciences Building one one day. We are monitoring appointments, and if they fill will look into offering more clinics for the Health Sciences/South Campus faculty and staff. The last few years we were only able to offer limited number of clinics due to COVID-19, and this year are excited to offer 18 clinics in total across 6 UW places of work. I hope this helps distinguish the difference in clinics. Please feel free to reach out via email at ategel@uw.edu if you have additional comments or questions.
