Take Action, Prevent the Flu

Flu season is here. Although not required, we highly recommend getting the flu vaccination to help protect yourself and your family.

Due to a new CDC regulation, we regret that neither Tianjin United Family Hospital nor Raffles will be able provide the flu shot on our TIS campus.

However, the good news is that Tianjin United Family Hospital is providing the flu vaccination at their hospital until the end of the year depending appointment availability and supply. Here is the information below:

Pediatric Well Clinic (at TJUFH) - Children 3 years to under 18 years old
Flu vaccination fee: 218 RMB (members)
(non-members will now require a consultation with a doctor for 415 RMB plus 218 RMB for the flu vaccination)
**the consultation fee was not required last year for non-members, but recently there was a new government requirement for the hospital to have established patients, sorry for any inconvenience.

Available appointment times are :
· 9 am - 3 pm (Monday to Thursday)
· 9 am - 4 pm (Saturday)

Family Medicine (at TJUFH) - Adults (over 18 years old)
Flu vaccination fee: 218 RMB (members)
(non-members require a consultation with a doctor for 415 RMB plus 218 RMB for the flu vaccination)

Call TUFH at (022)58568500 and ask the receptionist to make an appointment with a nurse for the flu vaccination or if you are and adult non-member and need to make an appointment with a doctor for consultation followed by flu vaccination.
