Flu shots available for faculty, staff, and students

By Life@TheU

In keeping with last year’s protocols, all students and faculty and staff members on all campuses will be required to receive the seasonal flu vaccine this fall. Flu shots are currently available by appointment at multiple locations on and off campus, and we’re sharing details on when and where you can receive your vaccine before the compliance deadline.

Flu vaccinations received at alternative off-campus locations and requests for exemptions must be reported through Workday (faculty and staff) or the Student Health portal (students).

Compliance deadlines

Faculty and staff: Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021
Exemption submission: Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021

Faculty and staff

The University has increased capacity to provide flu shots. Call for an appointment or to arrange for your department to be visited by members from the Employee Health Office. There are no scheduled health fairs.

  • Employee Health Office
    To receive a flu vaccination from the Employee Health Office, faculty and staff members are able to schedule appointments at several places on the Medical and Coral Gables campuses. Visit the Employee Health Office website for a full listing of availability and find additional details, including information about exemptions and required compliance procedures when receiving your flu shot outside the University or a UHealth Clinic at Walgreens.

  • UHealth at Walgreens
    Flu vaccinations are also available, by appointment only, at all UHealth Clinics at Walgreens locations. Schedule your appointment here.
  • Walgreens on campus
    Throughout September, Walgreens will offer free flu vaccines, on all campuses, to faculty and staff members by appointment only. Schedule an appointment prior to visiting a location during the hours listed below. Remember to bring your University-issued employee ID or ’Cane Card and have your "C" number handy. Prepare for your Walgreens on-campus appointment by filling out this form ahead of time, and remember to upload your flu attestation in Workday after visiting Walgreens.
