“While the employee shots are free, the dependents and spouses will have to pay $24 per person to receive the inoculation. You do not have to be an active patient at UT Health Science Center at Tyler to be eligible for the dependent/spouse flu shot program,” said Joe Vorsas, human resources director. Dependents and spouses wanting to use Medicare to pay for the flu shot must come to the University Health Clinic to get their shot and must bring their Medicare card and driver’s license.
Flu shots also will be available 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. Monday – Thursday at the clinic.
