The Health Service provides friendly and confidential medical services to students, staff, alumni and their families.
The flu season is rapidly approaching and, in the interest of promoting a healthy workplace, UTS is subsidising flu vaccinations for staff this year. Flu clinics are being offered by UTS with clinic sessions being offered during May.
Flu clinics will commence on 17 May. Clinics will be available 17, 20, 23,24,28, 30 May. Further dates may be advised later.
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment and bring a completed consent form to the clinic. It is requested you remain at the practice for 15 minutes following the vaccination in case of any adverse reaction.
If you prefer, you are welcome to book an appointment with your preferred GP at the UTS Health Service for your flu vaccination at a time convenient for you. In this case, you will need to phone 9514 1177 to book an appointment as per usual booking arrangements. You will not be required to pay for your flu vaccination.
The service is available at the City campus, with bulk billing available. Appointments for UTS students are given the highest priority.
