With flu season approaching, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends an annual flu vaccine as the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. In partnership with health care vendors, DCHR will host no-cost flu shot clinics for employees at five locations October 6-14. Please see below for clinic details.

Flu shots are available by walk in only on a first-come, first-served basis.

Flu vaccines are a quadrivalent (four strain), thimerosal-free shot. These shots can be administered to adults 65 years and older and pregnant women; however, health care carriers recommend employees first consult with their physician.

To ensure the best possible experience for yourself and your colleagues, please note the following:
There are no set appointments. Flu shots will be administered by walk in only on a first-come, first-served basis over the duration of the clinic; however, we are well stocked and anticipate no issues.
Bring your employee ID and medical insurance ID card; flu shots are available only to DC Government employees and contractors. We regret that we cannot offer flu shots to employees’ families and/or dependents; however, we encourage you to reach out to your health care-benefits and/or health care provider to inquire about how you can obtain flu shots for your family. Contact information can be found on your insurance card and here.
Please make sure you wear clothing that is appropriate for receiving a flu shot. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that privacy screens will be available at each location. To ensure a hassle-free experience, we strongly suggest you wear clothes with sleeves that can be easily pushed back, rolled up, removed, etc. or bring a t-shirt, etc. to change into for your shot.
Please be prepared for a brief wait, especially if you participate over peak break times, i.e. lunch time. Clinics will be well stocked and staffed, so we do not anticipate significant wait times; however, if you are short on time, we suggest planning accordingly.
