Employee Flu Shot Information

Influenza vaccination (either the shot or nasal spray) is the most effective way to prevent "the flu" and, contrary to common myth, the flu vaccine does not cause the flu. Employee Health Services is not conducting offsite flu clinics this year but encourages all employees to receive a flu vaccination this fall from their healthcare provider or retail outlet.

That County health plans provide members free flu vaccinations.  Click on the below link for more information.

  • Select CVS MinuteClinics and Target Clinics

To find a contracted MinuteClinic, just go to blueshieldca.com/findaprovider. Under "Facilities" select "Advanced Search" and choose "Retail Health Clinics".
