Beyond Blacksburg: Free flu vaccinations available at participating pharmacies for benefitted employees/families

Virginia Tech employees who have not already gotten a flu shot are encouraged to do so as soon as possible to avoid getting the flu this year.

Immunizations are available at most pharmacies across the state. You do not need to work at the Blacksburg, Va. campus to take advantage of this free benefit.

Flu shots are free for all benefited employees, and their covered family members.

Employees who choose to get vaccinated at a participating pharmacy should confirm with the pharmacy that they are participating in the Commonwealth of Virginia’s flu shot program. A list of participating pharmacies is available online.

Please note: Pregnant women and children under the age of 18 must have a prescription from a health care provider to get a flu vaccination.

For more information contact the Human Resources Service Center at 540-231-9331.
