4J Staff Flu Shot Clinics 2012

Protect yourself against the flu:

Thursday, October 18
Tuesday, October 23

3:00–5:00 p.m.

Ed Center Auditorium

Flu vaccination eligibility extends to:

  • all active employees (even those who are not insurance-eligible due to less than half-time status)
  • all insurance-eligible dependents of active employees, including those who have waived coverage
  • all retirees and their dependents who are currently covered on the 4J insurance
  • student teachers
  • substitutes (licensed and classified)

Flu shot eligibility does not extend to:

  • retirees who are no longer on the 4J insurance
  • retirees’ dependents who are not on the 4J coverage (even when the retiree is still covered)

Dependents: In this case, “dependents” refers to spouses and domestic partners, as well as insurance-eligible children age 10 or over. All children 10–16 years of age must have a parent or guardian with them to be vaccinated.

Children Under 10: The CDC recommends that all people 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine.  However, our particular vaccine is not approved for children under 10, so if you have small children you would like to get vaccinated, please contact your pediatrician.

Insurance Cards: If you have coverage under one of 4J’s ODS plans, please bring your insurance card to the clinics. Your group and member number will be required so that the cost of the immunization can be charged to ODS. Whether you have insurance coverage or not, there is no cost to you for the vaccination.

Flu Viruses: While the H1N1 virus used to make the 2012-2013 flu vaccine is the same virus that was included in the 2011-2012 vaccine, the recommended influenza H3N2 and B vaccine viruses are different from those in the 2011-2012 influenza vaccine for the Northern Hemisphere.

No Routine Flu Shots at Wellness Clinic: The 4J Wellness Clinic will not be giving routine flu shots.  They will have a limited supply of the vaccine for high-risk patients only.
