University of Arizona employees and students can get their seasonal flu shot by attending a drive-through clinic this weekend.

The clinic – being held by the Campus Health Service in collaboration with other UA departments – will offer the shots on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. To get to the clinic area, head east on Second Street from Park Avenue. Because this is a drive-through clinic, participants will stay in their vehicles from start to finish. The first 200 to show up will get a free flu prevention kit.

Employees insured under a UA plan are asked to bring their CatCards, their insurance cards and their employee identification numbers to receive their shot for free.

UA students will be charged $15, payable with cash, Visa/MasterCard or check with picture ID. Receipts will be given for those who wish to submit them to insurance companies for reimbursement.

To help the clinic staff deliver shots more quickly, participants are asked to wear short-sleeved shirts.

Students must be at least 18 years old in order to receive a flu shot. At this time, only seasonal flu shots are available.

For more information about preventing the flu, please visit the Campus Health Service flu page and the UA Campus Emergency Response Team Web site.
