Flu shots will be given from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, in Tucker Hall.
It’s that time of the year again! Anyone needing a flu shot is welcome to attend this event (i.e., employees, dependents of employees, students, members of the Baytown community, etc.). The Texas Vaccine Institute administer the vaccinations this year, and it will accept the following insurances: United Health Care, Blue Cross Blue Shield – TRS, Aetna – TRS, Medicare for seniors, and Medicaid for children under 18 years of age. The flu shot is recommended for adults and children over the age of 4.
The flu shot is free for Lee College employees (and eligible dependents) who are currently enrolled in the college’s health insurance through United Health Care (UHC). Please bring your health insurance card and a credit or debit card as a secondary billing option. The Texas Vaccine Institute will file a claim with United Health Care for this preventative service, but all participants filing with a health insurance will need to provide a credit or debit card as a backup or secondary billing option.
Non-employees can pay $25 (cash, check, credit or debit card) for a flu shot or opt to file a claim with their own health insurance company. The Texas Vaccine Institute will also bill the insurance company for the cost of the immunization, and participants opting for this payment method must also provide a secondary billing option (i.e., debt or credit card) at the time of service.
Referrals are not needed for individuals in the following insurances: United Health Care, Blue Cross Blue Shield – TRS, Aetna – TRS, Medicare, and Medicaid.
If you have any questions, please contact the Human Resources Office.
