The School of Pharmacy working with Falk Pharmacy is conducting flu shot clinics on the Oakland Campus.  Through the dedication of Dr. Deanne Hall and her team, the University has consistently achieved high levels of participation.

In order to expedite the administration of your flu shot, you are asked to complete the “Intake and Consent” form that was mailed to you in advance and bring it with you to the flu shot clinic.  If you do not bring the form with you, you will be asked to fill out a form before receiving your flu shot.   

UPMC Health Plan members may also obtain a flu shot from a participating provider at no out-of-pocket cost.  If plan members obtain a flu shot at a clinic or pharmacy that does not participate with UPMC Health Plan, then they will need to pay for the flu shot at the time of service and file a claim for reimbursement.  Reimbursement forms can be downloaded from UPMC Health Plan’s website at www.upmchealthplan.com, under “Commonly Used Forms” at the bottom of the page.

Individuals who participate in the Panther Advocate plan can receive $25 in HIA credits for obtaining a flu shot. 

Flu shots are covered by the University’s UPMC Health Insurance Plan at no out of pocket cost to you.  Obtaining the shot is convenient!  You will only need to sign the consent form and display your University ID and your UPMC Health Plan membership card.  Note that if you do not carry the University’s medical insurance, you can still obtain a flu shot on campus for a $25 out-of-pocket charge.
