Flu Shot Clinics
According to the CDC, the workplace may act as a "point of spread" where employees can easily spread flu to their fellow employees as well as to others in the community. We are encouraging all employees who want protection from the flu to get vaccinated for seasonal flu. Click here for the CDC's Vaccine Information Statement
Wayne State University Human Resources is in partnership with University Pharmacy and the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences to provide influenza vaccinations.
