From the TIS Health Clinic

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 or non-members, no consultation appointment needed with doctor)

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)

Available appointment times are:

  •      2 pm – 5 pm (Monday to Sunday)

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

Note from the High School Principal

The First Quarter has come to a close! As I reflect on everything that has already occurred this school year, I am excited about the staff and students that are part of the TIS family. The innovation, engagement and excitement that occurs every day in the classroom is a phenomenal testament of World Class education your children are receiving. Additionally, the extra curricular opportunities they are afforded are wonderful ways to develop students holistically. I am very proud of the educational system we have established and are continuing to improve. I look forward to continuing to partner with you throughout this school year and the remainder of your child’s education.
