Flu Vaccine Clinics-HR @ Carnegie Mellon University - Carnegie Mellon University

Flu Vaccine Clinics

Protect yourself this flu season by getting vaccinated at one of our flu vaccine clinics.

This year, flu vaccine clinics for faculty and staff members will be hosted by 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 that you schedule an appointment.

The university is covering the cost of the vaccine for faculty and staff members. Also, Giant Eagle Pharmacy is offering a $5 Giant Eagle gift card to those who receive a flu vaccine at a clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

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. Please note that flu vaccines will not be available at UHS until the third week in September. 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: What type of flu vaccine is offered at the Flu Vaccine Clinics?
A: A quadrivalent vaccine that protects against four strains of the flu virus is offered at the clinics. If you would like a different type of flu vaccine, call your health care provider to schedule an appointment or visit a retail clinic.

Q: Whom do I contact if I have questions about the flu vaccine clinics?
A: For questions, please email longmirs@andrew.cmu.edu or call 412-268-2047.
