How to access the facilities? There is a set of Rules and Guidelines that you will need to read, and a Release of Liability Form that you will need to complete and submit. This is true even for employees that have already submitted their Release of Liability Form for access to the EWC @ the Muni Complex (prior to Aug. 31, 2017).

Is there a fee to access the Fitness Rooms? There is a $5 per month fee (taken out of the second paycheck of the month) for employees who want to use one or both of the EWCs. There will not be a fee for employees who only want access to the Locker/Shower Room at either location. Note: Employees who wish to use the Locker/Shower Room at the EWC @ the Muni Complex will need to return the Release of Liability Form, as it is part of the EWC.

Questions? Contact your Wellness Coordinator at 253-591-2002 or wellness@cityoftacoma.org.

2017 Flu Shots and Health Fairs

Even healthy people can get the flu!

You MUST complete the FLU SHOT FORM and provide the information on your medical insurance card to get a flu shot: This enables the vendor to bill either Kaiser Permanente or Regence.

Important Note: If you are not enrolled in a City Medical Plan, because you are a City employee, you are still welcome to get a Flu Shot (at no cost). You do still need to complete the insurance form (but you can leave the medical section blank).

Save Time: Complete the FLU SHOT FORM in advance to ensure a quicker line and process.

Who can’t get a flu shot: These locations are servicing City employees only and cannot accommodate family members.  Family members should visit their doctor or insurance participating pharmacy for a free flu shot.
