Flu shot clinic Q&A
Q. Do I have to make an appointment?
A. Yes, to guarantee your place. After those with appointments have been vaccinated, walk-ins may be accepted if additional vaccines are available. We cannot guarantee that walk-in vaccines will be available.
Q. Do I need to bring my medical plan ID card?
A. No. Just bring your UCOP employee badge.
Q. How can I make sure that my flu vaccine will be documented in my medical records?
A. UCSF will offer a signed note from their nurse practitioner that you can give to your medical provider.
Q. I don’t work in Oakland. Where can I get my flu shot?
A. Flu vaccines are widely available — contact a retail pharmacy in your medical plan’s network or your primary care provider. All UC medical plans include coverage for flu vaccinations at no cost to those covered by the plan, as long as you follow your plan’s guidelines.
Q. Must I get a flu shot?
A. As in past years, if you’re working at a UC location, you must affirm your vaccine or formally decline one by completing the Declination of Influenza Vaccination form by Dec. 1, 2022. If you come on-site, you affirm your vaccine through UCOP Screen, which is in the process of being updated for the 2022-2023 flu vaccination.UC’s policy on vaccination programs, issued Aug. 30, 2022, consolidates existing vaccination requirements into a central document. UCOP leadership will make decisions regarding requirements for those who decline the flu vaccine (i.e. masking and other non-pharmaceutical interventions). These measures are intended to protect all members of the UC community, including students, faculty and partners with whom they interact. Read the Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Program (PDF).
