Free flu shots available for faculty
and staff members
McKinley Health Center will once again provide flu shots to UI faculty
and staff members, state employees and retirees. To be eligible for
the state-sponsored shots, employees must be eligible for state health
benefits based on their own employment, not as a dependent of another
The shots are available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday
at McKinley Health Center. No appointment is necessary. Staff members
also may go to other sites around campus. These additional sites will
be open beginning Oct. 22; times and sites will be posted each Monday
in the Daily Illini, on the Web at www.mckinley.uiuc.edu,
and recorded on a message accessible at 333-2701.
Employees can receive a shot under this benefit through Nov. 30. Staff
members and their families who are not eligible for a free shot can
get one for $11.
This is a one-hour approved event for Civil Service employees. Employees
may be released from work with pay, operations permitting and with departmental
approval, to receive a flu shot.
