Flu season is coming, and receiving a flu shot is the best way to prevent catching the illness. Below is a list of flu shot clinic options for faculty, staff, students and community members.

University of Missouri System-sponsored clinics

Note: The following flu shots are covered for faculty, staff, dependents (children 7 years and older accompanied by a parent or guardian) and retirees. If you are enrolled in a UM-sponsored medical plan, your flu shot is covered by your health plan. If you are not enrolled in a UM-sponsored plan, there will be a $25 fee for the vaccine.

Tips for attending this drive-thru flu shot clinic:

  • Bring your insurance card and a completed flu shot consent form.
  • You'll receive your vaccination from the convenience of your car. It's recommended you wear loose-fitting clothing or short sleeves, so your arm is easily accessible.
  • Someone will collect insurance information, payment (if necessary) and provide additional details about the process. Signs will help direct traffic flow. Please be patient and anticipate a wait.
  • Staff members will screen for COVID-19 symptoms upon arrival. If you are not feeling well, attend a clinic later or get your vaccination from another location offering flu shots when you are feeling well.
  • To protect staff members, keep your windows rolled up as you wait. Everyone at the clinic is required to wear a face covering — including those in vehicles. Children under the age of 2 should not wear face coverings.
  • When receiving your shot, keep your face covering on and face forward to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

There are other ways to protect against cold and flu season:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Refrain from sharing food, drinks and cell phones.
