Defend your health – and save sick days – at campus flu shot clinics

Vaccinations available Oct. 2-30

Flu Shot

Now is the time to build a defense against the flu with an annual flu vaccine. Employee Services and Kaiser Permanente make it more convenient, bringing flu shot clinics to each CU campus Oct. 2-30.

When sick with the flu, people are contagious for up to five to seven days after symptoms start, missing out on important work deadlines and family activities. To stay healthy, the Centers for Disease Control recommends receiving a flu shot by the end of October, if possible. The body’s full immune response to the vaccination takes about two weeks, and a seasonal influenza outbreak may begin as early as October.

This year, CU employees and spouses enrolled in a CU Health Plan can choose to receive a flu shot from either Employee Services or Kaiser. Students and children are not eligible to receive a flu shot.

Employee Services Clinics:

CU Health Plan primary members and covered spouses will receive the vaccine with no out-of-pocket payments. Members and spouses must bring along their plan ID card to the clinic to receive coverage. Non-CU Health Plan members can pay the $28 payment via cash, check or Visa or Master Card at time of immunization.

UCCS Clinics:

Only available at UCCS, these clinics provide free flu shots to all CU faculty, staff and spouses regardless of health care coverage.

Registration is not required for UCCS clinics, and vaccinations are given on a walk-in basis.

Register now to secure your shot.

All participants are asked to wear clothing that allows access to the right or left shoulder, as this year’s flu shot is administered via intramuscular shot.
