Flu Vaccination Options for Emeriti

By Neath Folger

Rochester Emeriti will have several options to receive their flu vaccinations this year.  While Emeriti will not be able to use the employee walk-in vaccination centers on campus, the options below offer many convenient locations and times.

Scheduled visits for non-employee ECH patients

  • Appointment lines open on Oct. 3: Please call your primary care site for an appointment.
  • Scheduled appointments begin on Oct. 15: Scheduled flu-vaccine-only visits take place Monday through Friday at all primary care sites during regular patient hours.
  • Scheduled, Saturday appointments for flu vaccine only visits available on Oct. 20 and 27 from 8am to noon at Mayo Family Clinic Northeast and Kasson:

Walk-in clinics for non-employee ECH patients begin on Oct. 22:

  • For patients age 8 and older who do not require a private examination room.
  • Southeast and Kasson Clinics, through Nov. 16
  • Northeast and Northwest Clinics, through Nov. 30.
  • Hours, all sites: Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 30 minutes before closing.

Adult walk-in clinic, Oct. 22 through Nov. 16- Mayo 17

  • For non-employee adult patients age 18 and older (without a primary care provider) who have a Mayo Clinic number.
  • Hours: Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Friday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • After Nov. 16, providers will need to order a flu vaccine for patients to obtain appointments at the Immunization Clinic.

In addition, many emeriti use a local pharmacy for their flu shot. It is convenient with parking readily available and it is generally done quickly. This can be done by appointment or as a walk-in. This is generally a Medicare covered service and the pharmacy files the claim for you.
