MEDICAL CHECK

  • Flu — If it is flu season (October - May), we also need evidence of a flu shot. Free flu shots are also available at Fort Greene Health Center (address below). Save the receipt if you get the shot from your local pharmacy.

  • TB — We need evidence (on paper) that you have been checked for TB (tuberculosis) within the past two years. You can ask your doctor for the test or use a walk-in clinic like Med-Rite urgent care (see address below).
