Flu Shots for UW Employees
Each year, influenza causes UW employees to miss up to five days of work. To limit the effects of the flu on the campus community, UHS hosts employee flu shot clinics in the fall. UW-Madison supports the CDC recommendation that individuals older than six months receive an annual flu shot.
No appointment is needed however the employee flu shot clinics are not available for spouses/partners or children. Download a printable calendar of employee flu shot dates.
Bring your health insurance card. If you have Anthem-Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Dean Care, Group Health Cooperative, Humana, Physicians Plus, WPS, Arise Health Plan, WEA Trust, United Healthcare, or Quartz, payment will be processed directly to your health insurance provider. Otherwise, there will be a $34 fee for the shot (payable by cash, check, Visa or MasterCard).
