- Benefits-eligible University employees.
- Dependents covered by employees' medical plans, including spouses and children age 4 and older.
- University of Arizona retirees.
- Other employees of the state of Arizona.
New! Registration is required to receive a flu vaccination at a University of Arizona clinic in fall 2020.
Note! Each person receiving a flu shot at a campus clinic will need an individual appointment, including all dependents.
(Flu shots are worth 25 Health Impact Program points!)
To get a flu shot
You can receive your free flu vaccine at a campus employee clinic or at various locations around the state of Arizona. (If you're working from home, consider exploring the off-campus options to help prioritize campus appointments for people currently working on-site!)
If you're working on campus
Book a 10-minute slot through the Healthwaves online scheduler for each person getting a flu shot, including all dependents. (Is your preferred date full? Check back later, in case more appointments are added!)
Print out a copy of the Flu Shot Consent Form for each person receiving a shot. (The provider will have extra forms on-site; please expect a delay if you must complete yours when you arrive at the clinic.)
Fill out the form with your alternate employee ID number. (Find your alt employee ID in the University Benefits tile of UAccess, at the top of the Benefits Summary tab.) Bring your form and medical insurance card to the clinic.
Campus clinic times and locations
Employee flu clinics are usually scheduled on the University of Arizona campuses in Tucson and Phoenix between September and November.
If you're working remotely
If you're teleworking or can’t find a convenient campus date or location, ADOA hosts other clinics for state employees around Arizona. University employees are also welcome at public flu clinics held by Healthwaves. (Be sure to bring your Flu Shot Consent Form, with your alternate employee ID number filled in, to ADOA or Healthwaves clinics!)
In addition, the Pima County Health Department is providing free flu shots to anyone in the community, regardless of insurance status.
