Your shot at good health: Register for an on-campus flu shot
No one wants to be sick, especially during one of the best times of year. The leaves are changing, the crisp air is perfect for a stroll, hayrides and pumpkin patches are abundant – you definitely don’t want to be stuck at home with the flu.
Vaccines make everyday moments safer. The CDC recommends that you and your family members get a flu vaccine before the flu begins to spread in your community. It takes up to two weeks for your immune system to build maximum immunity in response to the vaccine, so the earlier you vaccinate, the better.
CU Boulder, UCCS and System Administration
With this in mind, Employee Services will host flu vaccine clinics in October and November for all CU Health Plan enrollees to help you and your family stay safe and enjoy the season. CU Boulder clinics will be held Oct. 10, Oct. 24, Oct. 26 and Oct. 28. UCCS clinics will be held Oct. 17 and Nov. 4, and a System Administration clinic will be held Oct. 7.
At CU campus clinics, CU Health Plan enrollees can receive a flu shot at no cost. If you have medical insurance through another health provider, you can receive a flu shot for $39. Registration is required, and closes one week before each clinic. Visit our flu shot information page to schedule an appointment.
Members of the CU Anschutz campus community are encouraged to get their flu shot this fall through their health provider, local pharmacies, clinics and other available locations. For our clinical providers and students who see patients, be sure you follow any requirement to receive a flu shot at the hospitals or clinical sites. We also have a limited supply available through our Campus Community Health clinic by appointment only and UCHealth patients can schedule through My Health Connect.
For CU Denver faculty and staff, flu shots are being offered through Health Center at Auraria.
If you can’t attend a clinic offered through Employee Services, find a flu shot near you:
- Your primary care provider
- Medical centers
- And more…
