Onsite Health Screenings & Flu Vaccines Coming to All Campuses this Fall

As part of the employee wellness program, all full-time, benefits-eligible staff and faculty are invited to attend a complimentary onsite Know Your Numbers health screening this fall. For your convenience, we have arranged flu vaccine clinics to align with health screenings at all campuses through December 2022. Flu vaccines are available to all full- and part-time employees, spouses/partners and dependent children aged 18+.

What Happens at a Know Your Numbers Screening?

Our wellness partner, Be Well Solutions, will be on-site to conduct the screenings, which include a finger stick blood draw, blood pressure measurement, height and weight. Within a few short minutes, Be Well will provide you a personalized profile, which includes total cholesterol (HDL and LDL), triglycerides, blood pressure, glucose and body mass index. Be Well Solutions health experts are available to review the results with you, and you will receive a printout of your results that you can share with your doctor. Your results will be available electronically thereafter in your personal and secure Be Well portal. There are also opportunities to win door prizes!

Participation in a health screening is incentivized through Tier 1 of the Wellness Your Way rewards program (it can also be completed with your primary care physician). Pre-registration is required for the onsite screenings with Be Well Solutions.

How to Schedule Your Appointment

  • Log in to your private and secure Be Well Solutions web portal. If you have never accessed the portal, follow the first-time login instructions on the left of this page
  • Once logged in, select "Worksite Screening/Flu Vaccine" under the "My Appointments" tab. Select a date and location that fits your schedule. Keep in mind that you will need to fast for 8 to 10 hours prior to your health screening.
  • You will be able to schedule your screening, flu vaccine, and dependent flu vaccines all within the same registration. If you are only interested in receiving a flu vaccine, make sure to select the "Flu shot only" link.
  • Part-time employees can schedule a flu vaccine by calling Be Well Solutions directly at 1-888-WEL-SERV (935-7378).

Please note that while you must be a full-time employee and eligible for benefits, you do not have to be enrolled in the university-sponsored health plan to participate in a health screening. The screening is complimentary and will not be billed through insurance. Flu vaccines will be billed through Medical Mutual or can be paid for with a $30 check made payable to Be Well Solutions.
