Flu Shot Info - Fall 2022

Flu Shot

It is More Important Than Ever
to Get the Flu Shot


Attention ALL State Employees & Retirees:


Be Well Illinois, CMS, and its health partners, enthusiastically encourage you and your covered dependents to get your flu shot this year, as it is more important than ever to do so.                                                                                                                     
As flu season is once again upon us, and with many COVID protocols still in place, the access to flu shots for State Employees and Retirees may be a little different in your area than in the past.  However, there are many options available to employees and retirees to get their flu shots.  Below are schedules for on-site clinics in Springfield State agencies. 



Check back here regularly as updates will be coming for other areas as we receive them.

For outside the Springfield and Chicago areas: your best option may be to contact your local health department for times and availability or contact your health plan to locate where you can get your free flu shot.  REMINDER: All insurance carriers provide a free flu shot to state employees.  *It is also important to note that you can get a flu shot at your Dr.'s office and most pharmacies will bill your insurance.  Please contact your health plan administrator for details about this option.



Please bring your state health insurance card and State ID card.
