Additional Flu Shot Clinic Scheduled for December 9th

If the thought of not being able to move off of the couch because of muscle aches, extreme fatigue, alternating chills and sweats, a sore throat, headache and persistent cough makes you sick just thinking about it, consider getting a flu shot! While outbreaks of the flu can begin as early as October, usually flu activity peaks between December and February.

An additional on-campus flu shot clinic has been scheduled at the William Pitt Union lower lounge on Tuesday, December 9, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Flu shots are covered by the University’s medical plans for members at no out-of-pocket cost. Simply present your University ID, and your UPMC Health Plan member­ship card at the clinic to obtain your flu shot. You will need to complete a consent form at the time of service. Individuals who do not carry the University’s medical insurance also may obtain a flu shot at the on-campus clinic for a $25 charge.

Flu shots also are available at Falk Pharmacy Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Members also may obtain a flu shot at a participating provider at no out-of-pocket cost. If members obtain a flu shot from a clinic or pharmacy that does not participate with UPMC Health Plan, they will need to pay for the flu shot at the time of service and file a claim for reimbursement. Reimbursement forms can be obtained from the UPMC Health Plan website under “Commonly Used Forms.”
