Flu shot season is here and all faculty and staff, as well as their dependents, are encouraged to get a flu shot to help stay healthy throughout the winter months. In particular, faculty and staff who work in health sciences or have any type of exposure to patients should consider the vaccination.
Throughout fall 2018, the Pittsburgh campus and the regional campuses will have a number of flu shot clinics. Pitt faculty and staff with UPMC Health Plan coverage can receive a flu shot at no cost, as well as receive wellness incentive credit for having it done.
The full schedule of clinics — including dates, times and locations — is posted on the Office of Human Resources' (OHR) website. If you can't make it to an on-campus clinic, UPMC Health Plan members may obtain a flu shot from a participating provider at no out-of-pocket cost. Details on how to take advantage of this benefit are on OHR's website.
