WashU Medicine has communicated the importance of getting your influenza (flu) vaccine this season and recognizes that getting a COVID-19 booster vaccine this fall is another preventative measure to keep our campus and St. Louis community safe.
To help protect our employees, Occupational Health has added walk-in flu vaccine and COVID-19 booster vaccine clinics Nov. 18 and 28 as well as Dec. 5 and 12 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Walk-ins should visit the Occupational Health office in the Center for Advanced Medicine (4921 Parkview Place), Suite 5A. Employees may also schedule a flu vaccine appointment online.
As a reminder, WashU Medicine employees who work on-site or in a hybrid position at WUSM locations, including faculty, staff, and trainees, must receive this year’s influenza vaccination and upload documentation in ReadySet by Dec. 16, unless employees have been granted an exemption for medical reasons or religious beliefs. Exemptions must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Dec. 2. Note: If you receive your flu vaccine or COVID-19 booster through Occupational Health, your documentation will be uploaded to ReadySet for you so you remain in compliance with the university’s flu policy. For more information, contact Occupational Health at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The flu vaccine and COVID-19 boosters are also widely available at clinics, pharmacies and other health care providers.
To find booster locations or a Moderna vaccine site, visit vaccinatestl.org or vaccines.gov. You can also text your ZIP code to 438829 or call 1-800-232-0233 to find locations. WashU Medicine strongly encourages all those who are eligible to receive booster doses to increase protection against COVID-19 infection and complications.
