Flu Shot

Flu Shot

  • Flu shots are considered preventive and are available at $0 for all benefits-eligible state employees, spouses, and dependents, even if you are not enrolled in the state employee insurance plans. Dependents must be age four or older.
  • The 2023 program is now available - for locations, visit our Flu Clinic Listings. This spreadsheet will be continuously updated through the season, so check back often for your location. 
  • To save time at the event, please print out and fill out the Flu Shot Consent Form.
  • You’ll earn 500 HIP points for a flu vaccine.
  • Visit your doctor's office. 
  • Visit your pharmacy. 
    • Use an in-Network pharmacy for your medical plan. 
    • Bring your medical card and have the pharmacist bill the flu shot under your medical carrier coverage—NOT the pharmacy coverage.
    • Note: CVS is no longer in-Network for UnitedHealthcare members' preventive vaccines and flu shots. COVID-19 vaccines are available in-Network or out-of-Network. 
  • Do I have to pay for a flu shot? No. Flu shots are preventive care and are free of charge if you are on state insurance plans.
  • Why do I need to get vaccinated every year? Because flu viruses evolve so quickly, last year's vaccine may not protect you from this year's viruses. New flu vaccines are released yearly to keep up with rapidly adapting flu viruses.
  • Does a flu shot conflict with a COVID-19 vaccination? No. The two vaccines do not conflict. You may get the shots on consecutive days or on the same day.
