UW-Milwaukee will be offering on-site clinics for free flu shots, through the Well Wisconsin program. This event is for employees and their spouses who are enrolled in a State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance plan.
The flu shot will vaccinate against the four most likely causes of flu illness during the upcoming season, including the H1N1 strain of influenza.
Pre-registration through your WebMD portal is required to get a flu shot. No walk-ins, cash payments, or insurance payments can be accepted.
UWM event safety protocols will be in place and face masks are recommended during the flu shot clinics.
