2021 Program Changes
‘Foil the Flu’ Underway
‘Foil the Flu,’ the annual seasonal influenza immunization program for NIH employees and contractors, has begun and will end Nov. 5. The yearly clinic has significant changes this year. The vaccine will be given by appointment only through an online registration system. Walk-in immunization will not be available. The on-campus location is Bldg. 10 FAES Terrace.
All federal employees and contractors with a valid NIH identification badge are eligible to receive flu vaccine for free and are encouraged to be immunized. The best way to reduce the risk of getting the flu is to get the vaccine every year. All staff who have patient contact, including both employees and contractors, are required to get immunized each year.
All teleworking employees in the Washington, D.C., area are encouraged to schedule an appointment at the Shady Grove, Fisher’s Lane or Rockledge locations. Visit https://ors.od.nih.gov/flu/pages/default.aspx for more information.
