Flu Vaccinations

Getting an annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. As an Emory employee, you have several options for getting a flu shot.

Options

If you are on the Emory medical plan, you and your covered dependents can:

  • Visit any pharmacy that accepts CVS/Caremark to receive a free flu shot (you will need to present your CVS/Caremark prescription drug card).
  • Get a flu shot as part of your preventive exam at your doctor's office. Preventive exams are covered at 100% which means there is no charge to you (EHN or in-network doctors only). Note:  if you've already had your annual preventive exam and make an appointment for a flu shot, you may be charged for the visit. The medical plan will cover only one preventive exam per year, so plan accordingly.

If you are not on the Emory medical plan, contact your insurance provider for flu shot options. Flu shots are free under the Affordable Care Act.

Important Reminders

All Emory Healthcare employees are required to receive an annual flu shot. If you work for Emory Healthcare, you should attend one of the annual EHC Flu Marathon events to get your vaccination.

Emory University employees who work in an Emory Healthcare facility are also required to receive the flu vaccination or complete a medical or religious exemption.

The easiest way to get a flu shot is to attend one of the EHC Flu Marathon events. If you decide to get your flu vaccination through your local pharmacy or doctor, you will need to submit documentation to Emory Healthcare’s Employee Health Office to validate that you did receive an annual flu shot. FAX your documentation to 404-686-1527.
