UI Health Care Employee Flu Vaccinations

Here’s a thought: Get the flu shot! This year’s flu campaign begins Monday, Sept. 24.  

Flu season is coming. Take advantage of the free vaccinations provided by the university. Getting vaccinated is convenient and considerate; protect yourself, your families, and your coworkers by getting a vaccination and avoiding the spread of this year’s flu. 

Flu Shot Eligibility

UI regular full-time and part-time (50 percent or greater) faculty and staff are eligible for a free vaccine. ALL UI Health Care employees and volunteers, regardless of percentage of time worked, are eligible and encouraged to obtain a free flu vaccine as well. 

Not eligible for the free vaccine? No need to worry!

Although you don't qualify for the free flu vaccine through our employee health program, you have other options for getting a flu shot. The cost may be covered by your insurance.

Getting the Flu Shot as an Employee

Check the PDF iconschedule [PDF] to find a time when vaccines will be available near your workplace. You can also get vaccinated without an appointment at the University Employee Health Clinic.

You can find the University Employee Health Clinic at 1097-1 Boyd Tower, at UI Hospitals & Clinics (Elevator A, Level 1). Hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Make it Easy to Get Your Vaccine

  1. Sign into your ReadySet account and complete a short survey. Why? It’s a way to process important information while protecting your privacy. Once you’ve set up an account and finished the flu survey, it means you’re ready to get vaccinated.
  2. Bring your UI photo ID card (the Iowa One® card) to the vaccination location. A UI Hospitals & Clinics photo ID badge is also acceptable.

Please contact University Employee Health at employee-health@uiowa.edu with questions or concerns.
