Flu vaccine 2020


To support the health and well-being of UC students, faculty and staff and our communities, the University of California (in consultation with UC Health leadership) has issued a system wide executive order requiring all members of the UC community to receive an influenza immunization before November 1, 2020. For more information refer to the UCOP Flu Vaccine Requirement Notice


All faculty and staff will be expected to confirm receipt of the flu vaccination for 2020-21 using the Employee Flu Vaccination Requirement Form. Each employee will receive an email with a personalized link to complete the form.

Please complete the certification to: 1) Report receiving your flu vaccine, 2) Submit a medical exemption, or 3) Request an accommodation. Upon completion you will receive a confirmation email.


If you require a medical exemption, you must download the medical exemption form below and have it completed by your healthcare provider.

Any request for a medical exemption, or request a medical/disability or religious accommodation will be routed to the appropriate office for review and follow-up.  If you already have a medical accommodation document from your physician, you will be required to upload it as part of this process. Information on reasonable accommodations can be found on the Human Resources Reasonable Accommodation website. For more information, refer to the Flu Vaccine procedures.


Drive-thru flu vaccines

Flu shots are currently available for staff and faculty. If you have not been vaccinated and would like to schedule an appointment, UCR Health will be scheduling weekly Friday drive-thru flu vaccine clinics through the month of October on campus at Parking lot 25, in front of the Student Recreation Center-North. An option to request a flu vaccine appointment will be present once you complete the online form.

Drive up flu clinic

Employees enrolled in UC Medical Plans have access to flu vaccinations - most at no cost.

Healthcare staff 

UCR Health and Student Health Services employees working in clinics will be required to upload proof of vaccination. This includes physicians, medical assistants, residents, medical students, fellows, clinic management, and anyone else who interacts with patients in clinic.
