Before You Go - Important Things to Remember

Important things to remember:

  1. Bring your valid UK student or employee ID.
  2. Bring your prescription insurance card (if separate from your insurance card).
    • Students - If you are on your family's insurance plan, you should contact your family members and ask for this information. A screenshot of the insurance card is acceptable.
    • If you don’t have insurance you will still be able to receive a free flu shot.
  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).
  • 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.
