Fight the flu this season by getting your annual flu shot! The Well Wisconsin Program is offering a flu shot clinic during our Benefits & Wellness Fair. Flu shots are free and voluntary for all site employees who are enrolled in the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program.
Date: Thursday, October 5, 2017
Time: 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The shot will vaccinate against the four most likely causes of flu illness during the upcoming season, including the H1N1- strain of influenza.
The vaccine is not preservative free and is not recommended for the following individuals:
- Those allergic to eggs or egg products

If you are pregnant, you should receive the vaccine directly from your physician.
