No-cost clinics set for university employees for 2012-13 flu season

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the best way to prevent influenza is to receive a seasonal flu shot.

There are many ways for U-M faculty, staff and students to receive that protection on campus this year.


More information

• For more on the MHealthy campus flu-shot clinics, go to the MHealthy website, email or call 734-647-7888.

• The U-M Health System has scheduled a series of flu-shot clinics and options for patients and the general public.

MHealthy, in collaboration with Michigan Visiting Care, is conducting walk-in flu-shot clinics for Central, North and South campus faculty and staff at the following locations:

• Sept. 12, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. — Palmer Commons, Great Lakes Central Room.
• Sept. 27, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. — Duderstadt Center Connector Hall.
• Oct. 11, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. — Michigan Union, Wolverine Room.

Central, North and South campus employees covered under a U-M health insurance plan will not pay an out-of-pocket fee if their health insurance card is presented; the cost will be charged directly to the U-M insurance plan. Employees not covered under an accepted insurance plan can receive a flu shot at the discounted rate of $25 per person, payable by cash, check or credit card.

Campus employees who are unable to attend one of the flu-shot clinics offered by MHealthy can receive the vaccine through University Health Service. More information is available at

For faculty and staff at the U-M Health System, including the Medical School, all information about the requirements, and the various ways Health System community members can receive the vaccine, is available at The website must be accessed from a U-M computer or virtual network.
