Crossposted from Balanced You

get_your_flu_shot2018 King County worksite flu shots for employees start next month! Brought to you by Balanced You, onsite flu shots are open to all King County employees and flu shots are provided at no cost to benefits-covered employees. Employees with no health benefits may self-pay for the vaccine (flu shots are $30 each). Flu shots are on a first-come, first-served basis.

In response to employee feedback, we’ve added additional worksites to this year’s schedule: Kent East Hill Public Health, Brightwater Treatment Plant, Power Distribution and Dexter Horton Building. We’ve also adjusted clinic times at some of the transit bases, so be sure to check out the full calendar below and mark your calendars for the location most convenient for you.

If you’re unable to take advantage of worksite flu shots, they are also available through your primary care physician and many local pharmacies.

Flu shot coordinators will provide more information before your worksite’s scheduled date.

Remember to come prepared:

  • Bring your medical insurance card with you.
  • Wear short sleeves, a sleeveless shirt or clothing that bares your shoulder easily. This makes for speedy service and short lines!
  • If you need a receipt, please tell the clerk when you check in.

For more information regarding influenza, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Influenza resource page.
