Kroger partners with the State to offer flu vaccine
Kroger hosts clinics at state facilities; Also get flu shots at your doctor’s office, retail pharmacy or clinic
Kroger pharmacists are hosting flu shot clinics at many state facilities across Indiana. Clinics on the Indiana Government Center (IGC) campus are 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on October 12 and 13 in Conference Room B. The Statehouse Atrium is scheduled for October 18. The list of available clinics statewide is displayed below. Be sure to check back often, as dates are being added.
If you do not carry State insurance, the cost is $20 payable by cash or check. Please Note: if you plan to bring a child under the age of 11, it is necessary to have a written prescription from the doctor or pharmacist to administer a flu vaccine. Since most preventive care services are covered at 100 percent, employees with the state’s health plan and their eligible dependents should get vaccinated.
You must bring your Anthem ID card and a completed waiver prior to receiving the vaccination:
Note: Nasal vaccines are not being provided this year.

Kroger Pharmacies are also administering vaccines at participating retail locations. Vaccinations may also be administered at your doctor’s office, retail pharmacy or nearby walk-in clinic. Even at any of these locations, the state covers 100 percent of the cost if you carry state insurance. * TDAP and pneumonia vaccinations are also available.
Indiana State Police Health Care Plan Members are eligible to utilize these clinics; however, you must complete a separate claim form and bring it with you to the clinic. State Police Human Resources will be sending further information regarding flu shots and the appropriate claim forms.
Vaccinations received at state sponsored clinics will be communicated to both the Indiana State Department of Health’s Immunization Information System known as CHIRP (Children and Hoosier’s Immunization Registry Program).
The best protection against the flu is to get a flu shot every year before the flu season starts. Since influenza viruses change over time, it is important to get a shot every year. Each year the vaccine is remade to include the types of flu virus expected to cause illness during that flu season. The vaccine begins to protect you within a few days after vaccination, but the vaccine is not fully effective until about 14 days after vaccination.
If you are wondering if you should get a vaccine, a detailed list can be found at Who Should Get Vaccinated against Influenza.
