Get Your Flu Shot


UCSF will be holding free drop-in flu shot clinics to all UCSF employees, students and volunteers from Monday, September 16 to Thursday, October 24. The drop-in clinics will be at various UCSF locations including: Parnassus, Mt. Zion, Mission Bay, Mission Center Building, Laurel Heights, China Basin, Executive Park, and Emeryville.

The UCSF flu shot drop-in clinics are part of an effort to protect staff, patients and the integrity of the UCSF workforce.

The UCSF flu shot policy requires that all UCSF Medical Center employees, staff, students and volunteers be vaccinated for the seasonal flu. As required by state law, anyone who declines a flu shot must sign a declination form and wear a hospital-supplied mask while in areas where patients are seen, evaluated and treated. Declination forms will be made available in mid-October on the UCSF Occupational Health website. Please visit the following site for more information on UCSF policy: InfluenzaVaccination.pdf.

The 2019 Flu Shot Drop-In Clinic schedule is available now at FluShotSchedule2019.pdf.

Everyone who receives a flu shot will be given a yellow sticker that must be placed on the front of his or her ID badge; old stickers should be removed. Employees will have a choice this year to wear a custom sticker.

Employees who received a vaccination outside of UCSF must bring documentation to one of the flu shot clinics or Occupational Health Services to receive a sticker. OHS will add this documentation to employees’ electronic health records.
