Flu shot

Flu season is right around the corner, which means flu shot distribution is, too. Methodist Health System will once again be offering flu shots for employees via the Closed Point of Dispensing (CPOD) process.

By dispensing flu shots in a CPOD format, Methodist will be able to vaccinate a large number of employees in an efficient time frame. 


Help Needed at Flu Shot Locations

There is a need for staff to assist at the flu shot locations.

Employees who are interested in assisting at Methodist Fremont Health may sign up here.

Those interested at assisting at Methodist Hospital, Methodist Women's Hospital, Nebraska Methodist College and the 825 Building may sign up here.

Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital employees will be contacted at a later time about staffing opportunities.
