Start here: Employee and Volunteer Flu Vaccination Information
Modified on 11/19/2021 at 02:15pm

With COVID-19 cases rising due to the delta variant, it’s important we do everything we can to stay healthy, which includes getting vaccinated against the flu. The good news? It’s easy (and free!) to receive your flu vaccine through our University Employee Health Clinic. 

This year’s flu vaccination campaign has been extended to Friday, Dec. 3. Participation in the campaign is required.

All employees and volunteers are required to participate in the campaign. You must receive the influenza vaccine (from the University Employee Health Clinic or elsewhere) or decline it in ReadySet in order to comply.

This year’s campaign goals are to have 100% campaign compliance and 95% of employees vaccinated.

How to get your flu vaccination

Getting your flu vaccination is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Sign into your ReadySet account using your HawkID and password and complete our short flu survey.

    • Why? It’s a way to process important information while protecting your privacy. Once you’ve set up an account and finished the flu survey, it means you’re ready to get vaccinated.
    • Scan the QR code to the right using your phone’s camera to get started, or visit and enter your HawkID and password.
    • Logged in but still need help? Walk through the survey step by step.
  2. Bring your UI Hospitals & Clinics badge to the vaccination location.

  3. Get your flu vaccination.

Where to get vaccinated

There are several different ways that you can choose to receive your flu vaccine this year. We’ve taken extra measures to promote social distancing and safety.

Select one of the options below, and make sure to complete the flu survey in ReadySet to record your participation.

  • Attend a flu vaccination clinic. Check the schedule to find a flu time when vaccines will be available near your workplace.
  • Depending on your job role, there may be some employees on your unit or in your clinic who are designated to distribute the flu vaccine.
  • Other ways to get vaccinated
    • You can also get your flu vaccine from your primary care provider, QuickCare, or UI Urgent Care, or outside UI Health Care. Just make sure that you still record your participation in ReadySet after you receive the vaccine.
