I attended the first clinic. What should I do with the paperwork I received?
Those copies are for your records and can be presented to any employer or organization outside ECU who might require proof of flu vaccination. You do NOT need to give a copy to your supervisor. Staff at the flu clinics recorded your vaccination for ECU purposes using you Banner ID. A replacement form, if needed, will cost $10.
Is the flu vaccination truly ‘free’?
The vaccination at ECU clinics is offered at no cost to employees (including spouses and children) and students because the ECU Pharmacy is waiving the co-payment for insured individuals. Your insurance will be billed. For individuals not presenting insurance at the clinic or who are uninsured, the cost is $15.
May I get my children vaccinated at the ECU clinics?
Yes! Pediatric nurses are available at each clinic between 2-4 p.m. Please bring the insurance card that provides coverage for your children. Children are defined as dependents who are still in the home and/or included on your federal tax return.
Is the flu mist available at ECU clinics? What about the quadravalent vaccine?
The flu mist is NOT available at ECU flu vaccine clinics. Adults will receive the trivalent flu vaccine and only pediatric patients will receive the quadravalent vaccine.
Is a thimerosal-free vaccine available?
ECU clinics do offer the intradermal vaccine, which is preservative free. Employees needing a thermisol-free vaccine should ask for it upon arriving at the clinic.
