STAFF, FACULTY and POSTDOC FLU CLINIC
Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Hassenfeld Conference Center, Luria
11:30 am – 2:30 pm

As part of the Healthy You wellness program we are pleased to host a no-cost flu clinic on campus for faculty, staff and postdocs. Medical staff from the Wellness Company, an immunization and wellness provider that works with many colleges and universities nationwide, will conduct the clinic.

The Wellness Company accepts Tufts Health, BCBS, Medicare Part B, United Healthcare and Neighborhood Health. If your health care provider is not listed we made arrangements with Tufts Health Plan to provide a no-cost flu shot. Prior to receiving the shot, you must read and sign a consent form. You will be asked to stay in the area for 10 minutes to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction.

If you are unable to attend the Flu Clinic, we would like to remind you that Tufts Health Plan members are covered for the seasonal flu vaccine. Members can obtain it from their physician (preventive care is not subject to an office visit copay), but are not limited to in-network providers.  Members may receive the vaccine from a clinic, pharmacy, or out-of-network provider. If you are required to pay out of pocket, you should submit to Tufts Health Plan for reimbursement.  The member will be reimbursed for the amount they paid out of pocket, up to the allowed amount that corresponds with the procedure code of the vaccine they receive. No referral is required for flu shots.
