Flu Shot Options

Fighting the Flu, Learn how to protect yourself [PDF]

Flu shots are typically available at the annual Faculty and Staff Resource Fair. The Fair is not being held this year due to COVID-19. Please review the following flu shot options.

Pharmacies, Physician or Health Clinic

Human Resources has partnered with Anthem and CVS Caremark to provide a convenient free flu shot program.  Other vaccines may be available for a fee, please check with the pharmacy or provider prior to receiving the vaccination. All employees and family members (7 years of age and older) covered by the University’s Anthem/CVS Caremark health plans can receive flu shots from participating pharmacies during their normal operating hours. In most cases, flu shots will be available 7 days per week. See below for more information.

You and covered family members, of any age, may also obtain flu shots from your physician or health clinic. Anthem will pay 100% of the allowed amount for a flu shot provided by an in-network physician or health clinic. Flu shots provided by pharmacies will be covered at 100% only if the pharmacy is willing to bill CVS Caremark. Employees must present their CVS Caremark identification card to the pharmacy.

CVS Caremark ID Cards

CVS Caremark mailed ID cards to covered employees' homes in late June. A CVS Caremark app is available for download. This will provide a digital ID card as well as access to your prescription coverage. You are encouraged to register at www.caremark.com which also allows you to view /download your prescription card. If you have questions you may call the number on the back of your card, 1-888-964-0089.

Preventive Care

Getting regular checkups and exams can help you stay well and catch problems early. It may even save your life.

Preventive vs. diagnostic care

What’s the difference? Preventive care helps protect you from getting sick. If your doctor recommends you have services even though you have no symptoms, that’s preventive care. Diagnostic care is when you have symptoms and your doctor recommends services to determine what’s causing those symptoms. Review Anthem's Preventive Care [PDF] benefits including physical exams, tests, immunizations and women's preventive care for further details.
