Update: Onsite King County flu clinics now closed for 2020

Update: Thank you for a successful 2020 flu clinic season! Balanced You was able to distribute 1200 flu shots to onsite employees across King County this year. Onsite flu clinics have now ended. If you or your family members have not received your flu shots, please visit this blogpost for information on how to do so.

Getting a flu vaccine is an important part of protecting your health, your family’s health, and your community’s health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone six months and older get a flu vaccine every year.

This fall, flu shots are even more important given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While the flu shot won’t protect you from COVID-19, it has many other important benefits. Getting vaccinated can reduce your risk of getting the flu, help protect vulnerable populations, and conserve health care resources as we continue to navigate these uncertain times.

Each year, King County’s Balanced You provides onsite flu shots for employees. Providing programs to support your health and well-being is one way we’re Investing in YOU. Read on for how we’re modifying the flu shot clinic program to serve those most impacted during the pandemic.

Where and when do I get a flu shot, and how will I be safe?

The health of King County employees is Balanced You’s top priority. To reduce the spread of COVID-19 and promote social distancing, this year’s onsite flu clinics will be restricted to essential employees, defined as employees who are currently reporting to work rather than telecommuting.

Here are the other ways we are working with our flu shot team to keep you safe:

  • Reducing the number of vendors and employees onsite.
  • Increasing sanitation and cleaning between employees.
  • Mandating face masks, in accordance with King County policy.
  • Instituting several measures for social distancing. Check schedule for more details about each clinic’s location.
  • Encouraging appointments for each clinic.

Help reduce crowding and wait-times by:

  • Making an appointment to receive your flu shot. Walk-ins are also welcome.
  • Completing your flu shot consent form ahead of time. You can type directly onto the form, print, and bring with you to the clinic.
  • Wearing short sleeves, a sleeveless shirt, or clothing that shows your shoulder easily.
  • Encouraging family members to work with their healthcare provider or pharmacist for their flu shots this year, instead of coming onto King County worksites.

Below is a schedule of flu shot clinics being held across the county for essential employees. We will continue to make changes to the schedule, so check back for more updates. To promote social distancing, employees’ family members and employees who are telecommuting are asked not to come to King County worksites to receive their flu shots this year and are instead encouraged to receive their vaccine through one of these options.

If a worksite flu shot clinic is not an option for you, we encourage you to visit your primary care provider’s office or local pharmacies to receive a flu shot, which is a covered benefit for King County employees enrolled in Regence or Kaiser. While providers and pharmacies are following CDC guidance for delivering vaccines, there are steps you can take to protect your health as well. When getting a flu vaccine, follow CDC’s recommendations for running essential errands and doctor visits, and continue to take everyday preventive actions.

As we continue to learn more about and navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, let’s do what we can to keep ourselves and each other safe.
