Complete Your ReadySet Survey

Regardless of which vaccination location you decide, you will need to sign into your electronic, employee health record ReadySet to complete the seasonal flu immunization survey. The survey serves as your vaccine consent form prior to your vaccination on campus or enables vaccine documentation in your record if you chose a different provider. ReadySet can be accessed from anywhere including a mobile device.
