Academic Division - Where to get your flu shot

UVA faculty and staff are encouraged visit their primary care provider or local pharmacy to receive a flu vaccine.

  • Faculty, staff and team members covered by the UVA Health Plan may obtain a flu shot at one of the CVS pharmacies or any pharmacy in Aetna’s National Pharmacy Network, if you present your Aetna card at the pharmacy. Included are pharmacies at Giant Eagle, Harris Teeter, Kroger, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Wegmans. Please present your UVA Health Plan Aetna ID card during your visit so your flu vaccine will be covered 100%.
  • Even if you have a health plan that is not UVA’s, most health plans in the U.S. are required to cover the cost of the basic flu shot at 100%.
  • UVA Health Team members have additional options including onsite clinics. Details can be found on the UVA Health intranet.
  • Employees and spouses enrolled in the UVA Health Plan or UPG Anthem Plan can earn $25 for receiving a flu vaccine between September 1, 2022 and August 31, 2023. Complete the self-attest section in the Hoos Well portal in January 2023 to receive your reward.
