Stick it to the flu at campus flu shot clinics

On average, nearly 20 percent of the U.S. population catches the flu each season. Avoid being a part of this year’s statistic by becoming vaccinated. Employee Services and Kaiser are bringing flu shot clinics to all CU campuses Oct. 2-30.

Who can receive a flu shot?

Employees and spouses can receive a flu shot from all campus clinics. At some clinics, you have to be enrolled in a CU Health Plan to get a no-cost shot and, at others, you do not. Students and dependent children are not eligible. 

How much does a flu shot cost?

Employee Services Clinics: 

CU Health Plan primary members and covered spouses will receive the vaccine with no out-of-pocket payments. Your insurance plan has you covered! Just show your plan ID card upon vaccination.

Non-CU Health Plan members can pay the $28 payment via cash, check or Visa or Master Card at time of immunization. 

UCCS Clinics: 

Provided by Kaiser Permanente, all CU faculty, staff and spouses receive a FREE flu shot, regardless of health care coverage. 




Do I need to register for a clinic?

At Employee Services clinics, registration is required to anticipate the number of immunizations needed at each clinic. Find your clinic and register here.

UCCS clinics will give flu shots on a walk-in basis. No registration is required.  

What do I need to do at a clinic?

Wear clothing that allows access to your right or left shoulder as this year’s vaccine is administered via intramuscular shot.

At Employee Services clinics, please bring your plan ID card (Anthem or Kaiser) at time of immunization.
