It is More Important Than Ever to Get the Flu Shot

Attention ALL State Employees & Retirees:


Be Well Illinois, CMS, and its health partners enthusiastically encourage you and your covered dependents to get your flu shot this year, as it is more important than ever. Flu shots are safe and effective in the fight against influenza. State Employees and Retirees are eligible to receive the flu shot at no charge at our upcoming flu shot clinics as well as through your doctor, local health department, or pharmacy.

As flu season is once again upon us, there are many options available to State Employees and Retirees to get their flu shots.  Below are the scheduled on-site clinics in Springfield State agencies.

Check back here regularly as updates will be coming for other areas as we receive them. 

For outside the Springfield and Chicago areas: your best option may be your local health department,* or contact your health plan to locate where you can get your free flu shot.
 *Please contact your local health department for times and availability

It is also important to note that you can get a flu shot at your doctor's office, or most pharmacies offering flu shots will bill your insurance.  Please contact your health plan administrator for details about this option.
