Every fall, King County’s Balanced You program provides worksite flu shot clinics for employees. In response to employee feedback, we expanded this year’s program by adding late afternoon clinic times, four new worksites, and more staff to better reach employees. Over the course of six weeks, we traveled to Woodinville, Auburn, Maple Valley and several worksites in between, serving more than 3,800 employees.
Our team works throughout the year to plan these clinics with several benefit partners, our flu shot vendor and employees that volunteer their time to coordinate the clinics at their worksites. A special thanks to the coordinators and all employees who provided support throughout the program. We couldn’t do this without you.

Did you miss this opportunity?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that individuals age six months or older receive their flu shot. While King County worksite flu shots are now closed for 2019, there are still many options for receiving yours at local pharmacies and clinics. As we head into the holiday season, take care of yourself and your family members with these tips to boost your immunity.
Our flu shot program helps us build a countywide culture of health and well-being and is one more way we’re Investing in YOU. Thank you again to those who participated and supported this year’s clinics, helping to create a healthier, more productive workplace.
