Vanderbilt University and Medical Center faculty, staff, students and volunteers are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated for their own welfare as well as the welfare of Vanderbilt’s patients.

All of these individuals will once again have the opportunity to be part of a mass flu vaccination plan that last year more than doubled the current world record for the total number of vaccinations given in an eight-hour period.

Flulapalooza will be held Wednesday, Oct. 17, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Thursday, Oct. 18, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in a large tent erected between Light Hall and Veteran’s Administration Hospital. The free shots are available for all faculty, staff, students and volunteers. Family members will not be included in this event.

For maximum efficiency during the event please wear short sleeves and present your Vanderbilt ID badge. Supervisors should stagger staff participation.
Also, the Occupational Health Clinic is now offering flu shots at a variety of locations and times.

Also, beginning Oct. 8, the Occupational Health Clinic will offer flu shots at a variety of locations and times. To see a schedule, visit the Occupational Health Clinic website.
