How to get your flu shot

Flu shots are available and free to University of Kentucky campus employees.

Important things to remember:

  1. Complete your pre-appointment COVID screening questionnaire. You will need to show the completed screening approval at your appointment or complete a paper form on-site.
  2. Bring your prescription insurance card and Wildcard (employee) ID with you.
  3. Bring your completed UKHC Vaccination Form (electronic copies not accepted.)

Notes:

  • Faculty and staff who do not have insurance, are not on a UK or other health plan which fully covers the costs of a flu shot can receive a no-cost flu shot at:
    • the UKHC vaccination on-campus clinics;
    • through a UK HealthCare pharmacy location (ukpharmacy.org).
  • Appointments should be made in advance and the employee should bring a copy of their prescription insurance card, if they have one.

  • Fluzone HD vaccine for patients who are 65+ years old is not available, but the flu shot available at the on-campus clinics is indicated for use with those 65+ years old

  • We recommend that children under 9 years old, pregnant women, HIV patients and transplant patients see their doctor for vaccination.
