Get a flu shot at work — free for most employees

Worksite vaccinations in the coming weeks will make it convenient for employees to get their flu shots. No reservations are required; all vaccinations are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Free to employees on City’s health insurance plan

Employees on the City’s health insurance plan get free flu shots at the worksite vaccination events. Just attend an event listed below and show your City health insurance card from Medica (or a photocopy of the card) and a picture ID such as your driver’s license or employee ID badge.

Costs for employees not on City’s health insurance plan

The events, which are offered through Medica and the Minnesota Visiting Nurse Agency, are open to all employees. Employees not on the City’s health insurance plan may bring proof of coverage under other insurance plans accepted by the Minnesota Visiting Nurse Agency to pay for the flu shot; call the agency at 612-617-4795 to find out what plans are covered. The agency will bill employees for any denied insurance claims or for any deductibles or copays their non-City plans require.

For an employee without an insurance card, the fee for the worksite flu shot is $36, and the fee for the nasal spray vaccine is $40. Make checks payable to Minnesota Visiting Nurse Agency.

Family members

Family members who are at least 3 years old may get flu shots at the worksite vaccination events if they are covered under the employee’s City health insurance or other accepted insurance. Without an insurance card, the fee for the flu shot is $36. The fee for the flu mist is $40. Make checks payable to Minnesota Visiting Nurse Agency.

Why get vaccinated

Getting vaccinated is the best way to avoid the flu’s fever, aches, fatigue and dangerous complications that can cause pneumonia or land you in the hospital. Since flu viruses are always changing, each year’s flu vaccine is made to provide protection from viruses that are most likely to cause disease that year.

Who should get vaccinated this season?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone in the United States 6 months and older get a flu vaccine shot or mist this season (children 6 months old to 2 years old should be vaccinated through their primary providers). Learn more.
