UPMC’s MyHealth Community program will provide free admission to the museums of Art and Natural History on Sept. 20 and 27. And while you’re there, you can get a free flu shot — provided on limited basis — first come, first served.

Pittsburghers can check two things off their fall bucket lists at one time.

As part of UPMC’s MyHealth Community program, the nonprofit health care provider will provide free admission to the museums of Art and Natural History from 3 to 8 p.m. Sept. 20 and 27. And while you’re there, you can get a free flu shot — provided on limited basis — first come, first served.

Guests don’t have to belong to the UPMC Health Plan to get the offer, but UPMC members might be asked to sign in for attendance tracking. UPMC Health Plan’s health coaches will be there to field questions on the provider’s health and wellness resources and offer information about Marketplace Open Enrollment.

Adults, age 18 and older, can get flu shots on Sept. 20 and 27, while those under 18 can get vaccinations only from 3 to 6 p.m. Sept. 27, through the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Ronald McDonald van.

Admission to the museums does not include any paid programs, seminars, or special events that day. Parking is available for $7, cash only, at the garage adjacent to the museums.

The museums are at 440 Forbes Ave., in Oakland.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
