OccuVAX...? Or other flu/vaccine clinics...

  1. Wondering if anyone has ever worked for OccuVAX before? Is it legit?

    Any other flu/vaccine clinics you know of that I might apply for? I am in Tennessee.

    I was thinking the same. I did apply to an email sent by them and it asked for SSN. I provided them with it otherwise, the app was incomplete.
    Anyways i did look at other post in allnurses.com and it seems that there have been flu shot clinic conducted by occuvax. Check the following link with related discussion.

    It seems legit, I was a little wary of giving them my SSN as well, but did too.

    Did Occuvax turn out to be legit? I applied through craigslist and its almost welcoming me aboard. I'm nervous to input my sensitive info into the application..

    Not sure yet. I signed up and did their orientation session (which is just a PowerPoint you read and sign at the end saying you read it all.) Haven't heard back from them yet....

    I also just signed up with them. I believe it said that the weekly schedules of clinics won't come out until the 19th. I will be in Clarksville, T.N. The company seems legit to me. Let me know when u hear something.

    I have already received emails asking me to sign up for a clinic. There was a long list of positions and days, etc.

    As a new grad, I assume they want me to just jump in and start giving vaccinations? Or will I receive training? I can't seem to access that information anymore. If anyone else can, any words of advice would be great, thanks.

    I received an email too with a list of facilities and dates. Unfortunately I'll be in orientation for my new job so I won't be able to do any sites over the next 2 months. I am curious how it goes for you all that are doing it though! Let me know

    I think we would be expected to just go in and do injections. They had that powerpoint posted that explained how to use their syringes. I think it said there will be instructions on where to give the injection, but as a nursing grad, I think we are expected to know how to do IM injections.

    So did it turn out to be legit?

    Yeah, I've been getting weekly emails with a list of sites that need nurses. I haven't been able to sign up for any of them though since they're usually just 1-2 hours in the middle of the day during week.

    Has anyone ACTUALLY worked for them? Still concerned about the site and putting my SSN on there. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Says that training is mandatory. So that's good! But still unsure as to how legit this is. I've googled "Occuvax reviews" -- couldn't find anything either!

    So, how has Occuvax turned out? How did you guys apply, because their website only states to forward a resume to the email address provided if one was interested in working for Occuvax?? Was anyone called for an interview? Did anyone receive a call from anyone or just the list for available clinics. Also, did you receive orientation/training? Thanks for the info!
