Free Flu Shot Schedule for All UVA Employees


Flu season is around the corner. Influenza vaccination is a critical step in protecting yourself, your coworkers, family, and your community from infection with influenza virus. Pursuant to promoting healthy lifestyle choices and a healthy workplace for all UVA employees, Hoos Well encourages annual flu vaccinations for all who are able.

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Get a Flu Shot:

  1. As a benefit of being employed by UVA, it’s entirely free!
  2. The flu vaccine prevents tens of thousands of hospitalizations and millions of illnesses and flu-related doctor’s visits each year.
  3. It's convenient with walk-in availability at 5 locations around Grounds for Academic staff, and a broad time schedule.
  4. Two vaccine types will be offered in 2019, based on age and/or egg allergy – FluLaval Quadrivalent (standard) and Flublok Quadrivalent (for those ≥50 years of age or who have egg allergies). They protect against two influenza A strains (H3N2 and H1N1) and two influenza B strains.
  5. Prizes! If you get a flu shot from one of the clinics listed below, you can pick-up a scratch off game card (while supplies last) and test your luck at winning tickets to a UVA Athletics event, a FitBit, or a UVA Bookstore coupon.
  6. Bonus Reason! Parking lot restrictions will be lifted during flu clinic hours as will the garage code for the Newcomb Hall garage.

Please note:

You need to bring your faculty or staff id badge to the flu shot clinic. 

HR team members who are physically located at or frequent the Health System locations need to follow the same flu shot protocols as Medical Center team members. “Tier 1” Health System team members are required to receive a flu shot, as described in Health System Policy OCH-002

If you have had an adverse reaction to a flu shot in the past, or if you have concerns about receiving injections, we recommend getting vaccinated at UVA-WorkMed rather than at an offsite location. Flu shots will be available at UVA-WorkMed beginning October 16, 2019.
