LCSS Employee Flu Vaccine

PEEHIP Employee Wellness Clinic

The Alabama Department of Public Health will offer a free wellness screening and flu vaccine to employees on campus during the month of September and October.

 

The wellness screening is a requirement for employees and spouses covered under PEEHIP Blue Cross and Blue Shield Insurance in order to avoid a monthly increase in insurance premiums.  

 

This year employees will need to sign up online to set up their wellness appointment.  Employees may also schedule wellness screening with their physician or sign up online at the Health Department. 

Any staff member who only wants to participate in receiving a flu shot does not need to make an appointment.

If employees have difficulty signing up online for an appointment time please contact Myranda Barrett, RN, Wellness, Alabama Department of Public Health at 256-765-7513 or Lillian Clayton at 256-764-7453.

The flu vaccine is available but not a requirement of the wellness screening. The flu shot employee consent form is a carbon copy and must be completed at the time of the wellness screening. 

 

The ADPH PEEHIP Wellness Clinic offers flu vaccines for employees with PEEHIP Blue Cross and Blue Shield Insurance.
