Flu Vaccine Clinics
Protect yourself this flu season by getting vaccinated at one of our flu vaccine clinics.
Flu vaccine clinics for faculty and staff members are hosted by the Office of Human Resources and administered by Giant Eagle Pharmacy. To obtain your flu vaccine, you will need to present your Carnegie Mellon ID card. While walk-ins are welcome, for faster service we recommend you schedule an appointment.
The university is covering the cost of the vaccine for faculty and staff members. As an added incentive, employees who are vaccinated at a mobile clinic are eligible to receive $5 off their next visit to Giant Eagle. You must present your Giant Eagle Advantage Card at the clinic to receive the $5 credit.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a mobile clinic?
A: Mobile clinics are clinics that travel within communities and provide services where people work and live. Any flu shot clinic under the CMU Flu Vaccination Program that is scheduled on- or off-campus and hosted by the Office of Human Resources is considered a mobile clinic. The flu shots provided by University Health Services are not considered mobile clinics.
Q: Do I have to be benefits-eligible to receive a flu vaccine?
A: No. Flu vaccines are available to all faculty and staff members, regardless of benefits eligibility status or health plan participation.
Q: Can I still go to University Health Services (UHS) for my flu vaccine?
A: As an alternative to the vaccine clinics hosted by Human Resources, you may go to UHS for your vaccination. Visit the UHS website for more information.
Q: I can't make it to any of the scheduled clinics. What other options do I have for getting vaccinated?
A: If you participate in one of our health plans, the vaccine is covered at 100% at your doctor's office. Depending on your plan, you may be eligible for reimbursement for a vaccine received at another venue. Call your health plan provider for more information.
Q: I rarely get sick. Why should I get vaccinated?
A: An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through the community. Learn more about the seasonal flu vaccine from the Centers for Disease Control.
Q: Whom do I contact if I have questions about the flu vaccine clinics?
A: For questions, please email email@example.com or call 412-268-2047.
