Fall 2016: Get your flu shot to stay healthy this winter!

by Michelle Saport  |   

20161026-flu-shot-clipDid you know our healthcare plan pays 100 percent of the cost of a flu shot under the preventive benefit? To make things even better, we're offering a couple of on-site, walk-in flu shot clinics on the UAA campus. Depending upon the need and interest, additional events may be offered.

Tuesday, Nov. 1, 1-3 p.m. University Lake Building, Room 104

Thursday, Nov. 3, 1-3 p.m. Rasmuson Hall, Lobby

Staff from the UAA Student Health & Counseling Center will be offering a walk-in flu shot clinic on the UAA campus free to all employees and their spouses. If you are on the UA Choice healthcare plan, please make sure you have a copy of the front and back of your Premera insurance card. If you are not covered by the UA Choice health plan, you will not need to provide any additional information.

If you are not on campus at these times or are at a UAA rural campus, please be sure to contact your provider or pharmacy for information on flu shots. You can also go directly to the UAA Student Health & Counseling Center (Rasmuson Hall, Suite 120) and get your flu shot.

The vaccine we are providing is called Flulaval; it is a quadrivalent formulation. Those interested in more information should visit CDC.gov, which features a wealth of information on the flu as well as vaccines available.

The plan pays 100 percent of the allowable cost for routine immunizations such as flu shots. For more information on preventive services covered at 100 percent of allowable charges, please visit the UA Benefits website.

Please feel free to call the Randi Markussen in the HRS Benefits office at (907) 786-1452 or contact the main Human Resource Office at (907) 786-4608 if you have any questions.
