    It starts in fall, but when I spoke with the person who handled setting up interviews, she told me I was too late to apply and that its best to apply either in march or may, I don't remember. The website tells you what to do step by step

    It's all online. Start looking at the website around April or may.

    I got my job through craigslist. I saw the add in early October, applied, and got hired right away. It wasn't regular work but it was fun and something to put on the resume.

    I've done them before in the days before Craigslist when the want ads were still in the newspaper. They were okay - you'd just set up in a supermarket and shill flu shots to people as they were coming in. Media hysteria that year would dictate how busy you would be.

    Do a google search for immunization clinics/flu clinics. Then apply to all of them. Be honest with the days you are willing to work. I did them last fall and LOVED it! They usually over hire for these to ensure coverage. I make sure to pick up events when they call last minute.

    Flu shot clinics are great. You can probably apply year round. I too have seen ads on Craigslist and found the one I did on that site.

    I've worked 3 seasons (September-December) for The Immunization Clinic That Must Not Be Named. They usually start hiring for fall in June. They were badly understaffed last year, and actively recruited throughout the season.

    If you see a flu clinic at the supermarket or Wal*Mart, and the person running it isn't busy, ask them how to sign up.

    I was badly burned by a shady Rhode Island-based immunization clinic. Be wary of any clinic provider that won't return phone calls or expects you to work in a state where you're not licensed.
