Plan to Get Your Annual Flu Vaccination

It is recommended you receive your vaccination as soon as possible this year due to COVID-19. You can also receive your flu vaccine at a local pharmacy or through your healthcare provider. Local pharmacies have indicated they will receive flu vaccines in August 2020. Please call ahead prior to visiting the pharmacy to ensure shots are available.

Who Can Get a Flu Shot On-campus?

All employees are eligible for one free flu vaccine on-campus each year. Family members who are not employees are not eligible to receive a flu vaccine on-campus. UNI health insurance plans cover the cost of one flu vaccine each year. To ensure coverage check with your provider if they accept your insurance and present your Wellmark ID at the time of service.

Where Can My Family Get a Flu Vaccine?

Iowa law allows pharmacies to provide a flu vaccine for all individuals six years and older, without a prescription. This provides a convenient way for individuals to get themselves and family members vaccinated. UNI Health Plans pay for 100% of flu vaccinations.

All Children under six years will need an appointment with their health care provider, or a prescription from their health care provider, to receive the flu vaccine. All individuals age 65 and older should request a high dose vaccine. Most pharmacies provide the high dose vaccine but it is recommended to call in advance.

The following is a list (non-exhaustive) of local to UNI pharmacies that provide walk-in flu shots. Flu clinics will continue through January 1, 2021. Flu shots are available while supplies last and it is recommended to call in advance to verify availability.
