Getting a Flu Shot on Campus

UT students, faculty and staff can schedule a flu shot appointment at UHS.

Getting a flu shot is more important than ever. It can protect you and your fellow Longhorns and can prevent flu-related complications from using valuable medical resources needed by those with COVID-19 – a not yet vaccine-preventable illness.

Unfortunately, UHS cannot provide shots to UT retirees this year. We ask retirees to schedule a flu shot elsewhere. Employees with UT Select health insurance can also get a flu shot at any participating pharmacy or provider.

If you have not read about the type of flu vaccine UHS administers, charges and payment, continue reading. Otherwise, schedule your flu shot now.

Charges and Payment

Insurance billed for:

  • UT faculty/staff with UT Select or insurance accepted by UHS.
  • UT students with insurance plans accepted by UHS - excludes Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, and managed Medicare/Medicaid plans OR plans with a non-U.S. claims address.

$10 billed to:

  • Uninsured UT students or employees or those with out-of-network insurance plans or insurance plans not accepted at UHS - billed directly to their What I Owe.
  • Any UT student or employee who does not enter valid insurance information when scheduling their flu shot appointment online - billed directly to their What I Owe.

UHS is unable to collect payment on site.
All charges, if applicable, will be posted to the student/faculty/staff members What I Owe page.

About the flu vaccine UHS will administer

UHS provides quadrivalent, preservative (thimerosal)-free, latex-free flu vaccine. UHS does not administer either vaccines made specifically for people age 65 and older. We ask those with allergies to eggs or those who have had a severe reaction to a prior flu shot to get their flu shot from their healthcare provider. You can contact the Forty Acres Pharmacy to ask about flu vaccine for those age 65 and older or with an egg allergy.
