Shoreline will host a flu immunization clinic from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 21, in Room 9202 PUB. Immunizations will be available by the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association for students, faculty, and staff.
The association can bill most major health insurance plans – Regence, Premera, Group Health, United Healthcare, Molina, Community Health plan, Coordinated Care, and Aetna – for the flu immunizations.
