Flu season is just around the corner and MUSC Employee Health is preparing to fight this illness among employees.
The flu vaccine is available for Medical University Hospital Authority, MUSC, University Medical Associates, Sodexo and Crothall employees and volunteers. For fast and convenient service, employees are encouraged to receive the flu vaccine at one of the campuswide satellites hosted by Employee Health Services and Infection Control. Bring your MUSC ID badge and your MUSC ID number - Social Security numbers will no longer be used to verify compliance.
Students may obtain the vaccine from Student Health Services, however agency and other non-MUSC paid employees are not eligible. For faster service complete the consent form before you arrive (http://www.tinyurl.com/3t9kdmr) and bring with you for entry into the Express Line. Forms will be available at the administration site.
