Several vaccines to be offered at the Hokie Wellness Health and Benefits Fair

From: Hokie Wellness

Vaccines will be offered at the Hokie Wellness Health and Benefits Fair on Wednesday, Jan. 16, from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McComas Hall.

The TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis), and pneumonia vaccinations will be available. Certain restrictions apply for the pneumonia vaccine, which will be discussed with the pharmacist at the time of vaccination.

The flu vaccination will also be available. It is not too late to be vaccinated if you have not yet received your flu vaccine.

The vaccinations are free for employees with Anthem or Aetna benefits who bring their insurance cards. The flu vaccination will cost $25 cash or check for those who do not have health insurance.

As part of the university’s commitment to maintaining healthy lifestyles, all employees are encouraged to attend the fair. Supervisors of employees are strongly encouraged to allow eligible employees in their respective areas to participate for a minimum of two hours in this year’s event. The event is sponsored by Virginia Tech Division of Human Resources, StudentAffairs and Real Life Dental.
