UNC-Chapel Hill has begun providing opportunities for community members to obtain a flu vaccination on campus.

School of Medicine teammates with UNC Health clinical affiliations are required to receive a flu shot. Those with clinical affiliations are all faculty and staff employed by UNC-Chapel Hill who provide direct patient care or who otherwise perform job duties in a patient-facing setting. The timeline for compliance with UNC Health’s policy is Oct. 2 – Nov. 1.

All School of Medicine teammates are eligible for a free flu shot.

  • The University Employee Occupational Health Clinic (UEOHC) will offer flu vaccinations for SOM health care personnel who are part of the Immunization Review Program during walk-in hours from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays.
    • UEOHC is located on the 2nd floor of the AHEC Building at 145 Medical Drive.
    • Information on other university clinics offering flu vaccination can be found here:
