Wellness Incentive points-eligible activity

Who is eligible?

Any University of Missouri 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 (PDF) - Please note, flu shots are administered on campus by Walmart/Sam’s. The consent form you’re asked to complete is an offsite form developed by Walmart, 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.

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?

When you get your flu shot, eligible employees can earn 50 points toward Tier 2 of the 2018 Wellness Incentive, which rewards you with for taking steps toward a healthier life. Of course, you'll need to complete Tier 1 of the Incentive to be eligible to complete Tier 2, but both Tiers start at the same time: November 1, 2017. If the clinic listed below is before November 1, 2017, 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.
