Please note that there may be some instances where a particular location offered by one of the above centers is not participating in the national UnitedHealthcare network. If you have any questions, please call the phone number located on the back of your UnitedHealthcare card.
Do your part to fight the flu. Getting vaccinated doesn't protect just you, but it protects everyone around you, including your family, friends and colleagues. Stop by a participating pharmacy near your work or home today, or one of the on campus flu clinics, and get the shot. It is easy and convenient.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that influenza activity remains high in the United States and this may continue for some time.
There are at least six participating CVS and Walgreens pharmacies within walking distance of the Foggy Bottom campus and at least two within a few miles of the Virginia Science and Technology Campus.
