Wellness Incentive points-eligible activity

Who is eligible?

Any University of Missouri System faculty or staff member, dependent, or retiree may get a flu shot at one of our campus clinics. If you are enrolled in the Healthy Savings Plan, the Custom Network Plan, the PPO Plan or the myRetiree Health Plan, your flu shot is covered by your health plan. If you are not enrolled in any of these University of Missouri (UM) System medical plans, there will be a $20.00 fee for the vaccine.

Children 12 years and older enrolled in a UM medical plan—and accompanied by a parent or guardian—may receive the vaccine. Due to different vaccination needs, children age 11 and younger should obtain their flu vaccine from their health care provider, health department or community clinic. 

Please note: MU Health Care employees will receive a free vaccination from their Staff Health office. University students can receive a flu shot at their Student Health office.

What should I bring?

When visiting an on-campus flu shot clinic, have with you…
  • A completed flu shot consent form (download this PDF) - Please note, flu shots are administered on campus by Schnucks Pharmacy. The consent form you’re asked to complete is an offsite form developed by Schnucks, and is required to receive a vaccine.
  • Your insurance card—Bring this card if you are enrolled in a UM medical plan and want to ensure your shot is free.
    —OR—
  • $20* cash or check made out to Healthy for Life—Bring payment if you are not enrolled in a UM medical plan and are electing to pay for your vaccination at one of our clinics.

*Please note, high-dose vaccines, available to some individuals over the age of 65, may be provided for a cost of $72.30.

How do I register?

No registration or appointment is necessary. Just come to one of the clinics on the dates listed below.

How do I earn Wellness Incentive points?

Eligible employees can earn 50 points toward Cycle 1 of the 2020 Wellness Incentive by getting a flu shot. If the clinic listed below is before November 1, 2019, that's okay! The Incentive points you receive by getting your flu shot will show up in the Wellness Portal when the Incentive kicks off in November. 

If you get your shot at a campus clinic (listed below), the Healthy for Life team will record your flu shot points in the Cerner Wellness Portal for you. If you choose to get your shot from a health care provider, health department or community clinic, you will need to enter the details of your vaccination in the Wellness Portal yourself.

The HealthyNow application is also available to download to your mobile device on the App Store and Google Play. HealthyNow is designed to be compatible with your Wellness Portal. Scan a QR code at the clinic to record your flu shot points easily! Find out more here.
