Flu Shots Offered on Campus

Issue Date: 
September 28, 2015

From late September through early November, flu shots are being offered to faculty and staff on the Pittsburgh campus, as well as their dependents, age 18 or older.

The shots are free for Pitt faculty and staff who show valid University and UPMC Health Plan ID cards. All dependents, too, must show their own UPMC insurance card. 

Flu season starts as early as October and lasts until May, peaking in January and February, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which recommends a yearly flu vaccine as an important step in protecting against flu viruses.
