Flu Prevention 2021-2022
Influenza can be a serious, contagious respiratory disease. The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to be vaccinated every year. This year, getting your flu vaccination is even more important as being vaccinated against influenza will help reduce the overall burden of respiratory diseases and help conserve health care resources.
There are several opportunities for UNC-Chapel Hill community members to obtain a flu vaccination on campus:
- Student Stores Pharmacy will offer no-appointment flu shots for students, faculty and staff during operating hours (Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) Located on the 3rd floor of UNC Student Stores. Medicare plans not accepted.
- Campus Health Pharmacy located in the basement of Campus Health, will offer walk-in flu shots for students and staff during operating hours (Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.).
- Pop-up flu vaccine clinics (various locations and dates, noon - 4 pm)
Most health insurance plans offer flu vaccination with no copay. Campus Health is in-network with most major insurance plans, including the State Health Plan and Student Blue. Campus Health does not accept Medicare plans. Please bring a copy of your insurance card. You will be billed for any out-of-pocket expense as determined by your insurance company. Flu vaccination is available for $40 for those without insurance.
More information regarding UNC-Chapel Hill flu clinics and flu prevention is available at flu.unc.edu.
This year, the University is once again partnering with Alana’s Foundation to track our campus participation in a national university competition. Anyone vaccinated at an on-campus pharmacy or flu clinic will have their vaccine counted for UNC-Chapel Hill.
