Annual Vaccine Program (Flu Shots, Covid, Pneumonia)

Influenza, commonly known as “the flu” is an unpredictable and serious illness that can lead to hospitalization, and sometimes death, especially in high risk groups.   All employees and family members are encouraged to protect themselves during the upcoming flu season. 

Employees and adult (18+) dependents covered by the City’s health plan have several options to get a flu shot, Covid vaccine, and pneumonia vaccine at no cost during the 2023 cold and flu season.

  1. Attend one of our on-site vaccine clinics during your workday. Walk-ins are welcome.

Dependents/children under 18 must be vaccinated at their pediatrician’s office.

Employees that are NOT covered by the City’s health plan should call the City's Occupational Safety and Health Clinic (645-3278) to schedule their free flu shot.
