EMMC University Medicine–Cutler Health Center is now Accepting Appointments for Employee Flu Shots

Flu shots are now available for University of Maine and Systems Office employees, as well as their dependents over the age of 18, covered under the UMS Cigna health insurance plan. If you fall into this category, please register for an appointment below. The vaccine being administered is the Quadrivalent version.

Attention Retirees/Retiree Dependents – if you are a UMaine retiree or dependent covered under the Aetna plan you can still choose a clinic date, however additional paperwork will be required during your visit.

  • Please bring your health insurance card with you at time of your visit.
  • You can access Cutler Health Center by using the front entrance facing the Bennett parking lot. You may park in patient parking, but you will need to obtain a parking pass during check in.
  • Your vaccination will be given in your upper arm. Please consider wearing a short sleeve shirt or a shirt that can be easily rolled up.
  • Women that are pregnant must receive permission from their doctor to receive the flu vaccination (documentation is required).

The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.

While there are many different flu viruses, the flu vaccine is designed to protect against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season.

Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it become available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from the vaccination will last throughout the flu season. For more information please click here.
