Don’t throw away your shot
The CDC recommends people get their flu shot before the end of October, so don’t forget to get yours at one of the several clinics set up through a partnership between Dallas ISD and CVS Pharmacy to provide convenient drive-thru and walk-up flu clinics for employees at a variety of times and locations.
Seasonal flu mimics many of the same symptoms of COVID-19, which can make it difficult for patients and providers to tell the difference between the two illnesses. Getting a flu shot is an important step we can all take to protect ourselves and our families.
To find the date, time and location most convenient to you, click here. We recommend that staff complete the electronic flu shot form available here before going to get a flu shot. Forms will also be available at the clinic sites.
Staff can also go to any CVS location to get the flu shot, which is free with any TRS-Active Care insurance and Medicare. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the scheduled clinics around the district, CVS is administering flu vaccines at four Dallas drive-thru clinics from 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 22 as part of a city-sponsored event. While this event is targeted for ages 55 and older, anyone with insurance that covers the cost of flu vaccinations may attend. There will be no cash exchange or payment for vaccine/administration at the event.
