Getting your flu vaccination at UF Health is easy. Beginning Sept. 5, the following workers are eligible for a no-cost flu shot — no appointment needed — through UF Health Shands Occupational Health, or OHS, located at UF Health Shands Hospital, Room 1004:
- UF Health Shands employees and volunteers
- UF Health Physicians employees
- UF College of Medicine faculty, physicians, residents and fellows
- Credentialed ARNPs
- Credentialed physician assistants
- Credentialed medical staff
ID BADGE REQUIRED TO RECEIVE FLU SHOT
In September and October, OHS will co-host several flu vaccination events with the UF Student Health Care Center in the UF Health Shands Hospital Atrium, Room 1205 in the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital, and the UF Health Heart & Vascular and Neuromedicine hospitals lobby, adjacent to the information desk. Staff members are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to be vaccinated at one of these events. At co-hosted events, all UF College of Medicine faculty, staff and students can also receive a no-cost flu vaccination with an ID badge and insurance card.
OHS will also provide flu vaccinations at dozens of satellite locations. See a calendar of flu vaccination events on Flu Central at Bridge.UFHealth.org/flu.
If you belong to one of the groups listed and choose to get a flu vaccination from a provider outside UF Health or UF, you’ll be asked to provide documentation of proof of vaccination to obtain a vaccination sticker for your ID badge.
Beginning Oct. 31, those who choose to opt out of receiving the vaccination for medical, religious or personal reasons will be required to follow a formal opt-out process and wear a mask in patient care areas.
