Flu shot clinics 

Getting a flu shot is one of the best actions you can take to stay healthy. With that in mind, the COVA Care, COVA HealthAware and COVA HDHP health plans provide free flu shots (covered by the prescription drug benefit of your health plan) for eligible employees and their covered dependents.

For your convenience, VCU Human Resources has arranged for Walgreens, a participating pharmacy for the COVA health plans, to conduct on-campus flu vaccination clinics as listed below. Please bring your COVA health plan member ID card to the on-campus clinics.

Unable to make one of the on-campus clinics?
Most pharmacies offer the flu vaccination. To receive the flu shot at no cost, call a convenient local retail pharmacy to verify that they offer onsite immunizations and that hey participate in your health plan’s pharmacy network.

Special Note for COVA HealthAware participants:
If you intend to use your flu shot to obtain the "Do Right" credit in your Aetna Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA), be sure to obtain written confirmation of your flu shot from the participating pharmacy.
