Vanderbilt University Medical Center is ready for its eighth annual mass influenza vaccination event, set for Wednesday, Sept. 26, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the area between Light Hall and the Veteran’s Administration Hospital.

Faculty, staff, students and volunteers from the Medical Center and Vanderbilt University are encouraged to receive a flu shot during the 12-hour event.

This year’s event will continue to offer three vaccine choices: high-dose, recommended for those age 65 and older, egg-free for those with egg allergies and standard Quadrivalent (the four-component vaccine).

Last year, 13,938 vaccinations were given at Flulapalooza.
