Emory's faculty and staff have several options for getting their flu vaccine:
Kroger Pharmacy. Once again, benefits-eligible employees will have the option of downloading a voucher to receive a flu shot free of charge at a Kroger Pharmacy. You will be able to download from this website beginning October 6th. Non-benefits eligible employees can download a coupon to receive a flu shot at a discounted price of $24. Take your voucher (or coupon) and a photo ID to a Kroger Pharmacy between October 6, 2014 and January 31, 2015. No appointment necessary! Find your nearest Kroger Pharmacy at www.kroger.com or call 1.800.KROGERS.
Your Doctor’s Office. For Emory employees covered under one of Emory’s medical plans, flu shots are considered “preventive care” which means it’s free (for you and any covered dependents) at your doctor’s office (in-network doctors only) at any time. Be sure to take your Aetna medical card with you.
Other Pharmacy. Several local pharmacies offer flu shots (CVS, Walgreens, etc.). This year, employees and covered dependents on the Aetna POS or HSA Medical Plans can get a free flu shot at any pharmacy that accepts Express Scripts. You will need to present your Express Scripts card. You can get your flu vaccine at any time.
IMPORTANT REMINDER FOR EMPLOYEES WHO WORK IN AN EMORY HEALTHCARE FACILITY:
As a reminder, any Emory University employee who works in an Emory Healthcare setting is REQUIRED to get a flu shot. If you are an EU Physician or EU Employee working in an EHC facility, you should attend an EHC flu marathon to ensure proper documentation. Visit the intranet (www.ourehc.org) for the schedule. If you choose to get a flu shot at one of the methods above, be sure to forward the necessary documentation to Employee Health to validate that you did receive a flu shot this year. Fax documentation to 404-686-1527.
