Each year, between 5 and 20 percent of the U.S. population contracts the flu virus. Don't miss your shot at good health this flu season: There are still openings at CU Boulder clinics Oct. 25 and Oct. 29.

Flu shots are free for CU Health Plan primary members and their spouses. Non-CU Health Plan members pay $26 dollars for a shot, and some insurances will be accepted (see the list of accepted insurance providers). If you carry health insurance but it’s not accepted at our clinics, you may be able to receive a free shot at your doctor’s office.   

    If you’re a CU Health Plan member and you can’t make it to one of the clinics, don’t worry. You’re eligible for a free shot through your primary care provider. Visit the CU Employee Services website to find a provider.
