Plan to get your flu shot and COVID-19 booster this fall

posted by Amber Brady on September 19, 2022 flu shot image

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.

Vaccine clinics will be held at many state facilities across Indiana. The flu vaccine as well as the new COVID-19* boosters, which provide protection against the two dominant strains that are circulating, will be available at these clinics** and can be administered at the same time.

Be sure to bring your employee badge and insurance ID card.

Registration required

Employees will need to register in advance to receive their vaccinations during an on-site clinic. While walk-ins may be accepted, they cannot be guaranteed due to current safety protocols, availability of vaccines, and staffing. Registering in advance ensures that there will be enough of each vaccine for each person attending.

Enrollment code: IN97832

The on-site vaccination clinics are available to state employees and dependents, 6 months of age and older, covered by state employee insurance. Contractors working for the state can also be vaccinated at these clinics if they use their own insurance.

Employees using a state insurance plan will have no cost for the flu vaccine or COVID-19 vaccines. While most insurance plans cover vaccines, individuals utilizing non-state insurance plans are encouraged to check coverage with their insurer in advance. Be sure to bring your employee badge and insurance ID card.
