Flu vaccine: No pain here!

posted by Meaghan Milliorn

The annual flu vaccine campaign is going on from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, in the lower concourse of the Donaghey Student Center.

For benefits-eligible employees with the UA System health plan, UMR will cover the cost but employees must bring their membership card.┬áNon-benefits eligible employees and those who do not have UMR can still receive the vaccine – the cost will be covered by UALR.

Students should get their free flu shots at this time too. As long as you know your T#, your flu shot will be covered.

After Oct. 23, flu vaccines will continue to be available through Health Services on an appointment basis, but I’d recommend going today.

A few from our office showed up around 10 a.m. There was a group already there but we didn’t have to wait at all. And the UALR nursing students did a great job! It was painless and quick, just what we wanted.

Oh, and the sucker helped too.
