Volunteers needed for Oct. 1 Flulapalooza

Volunteers are needed to assist with this year’s Flulapalooza on Wednesday, Oct 1, where Vanderbilt University and Medical Center faculty, staff, students and volunteers can quickly receive their flu vaccination.

While exempt employees are encouraged to participate as volunteers, non-exempt employees can also participate in this event. All volunteers should receive prior approval from their supervisor before volunteering for the three-hour shifts.

Supervisors and managers should be aware that the volunteer time approved for the event will be compensated from the employee’s department and not through the Flulapalooza event.

Flulapalooza will be held Wednesday, Oct. 1, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in a large tent erected between Light Hall and the Veteran’s Administration Hospital. The free shots are available for all faculty, staff, students and volunteers. Family members will not be included in this event.
