Operation Immunization

Unemployed? Uninsured? Unable to pay? Operation Immunization offers free flu shots to keep you healthy all winter long.

United Way wants to make sure everyone is prepared for the flu season.

FREE FALL FLU SHOT CLINICS

Each fall, United Way partners with KU School of Pharmacy-Wichita students to offer free flu shot clinics for those who are unemployed, uninsured or unable to pay, ages 3 and older. The program prevents a burden on the healthcare system, helps individuals avoid lost work time and curbs debt due to medical bills. By hosting five clinics across the city, barriers to accessing needed healthcare are removed for our most vulnerable populations. This annual partnership empowers local pharmacy students to gain leadership skills by coordinating and operating the clinics with community partners while also learning how to administer immunizations under the supervision of licensed and certified pharmacists. United Way supports the program by funding the vaccines. Collaborations like this one strengthen the health and well-being of our community.
