Flu Shot Clinics on Campus - Students

To: UCSC Students

From: Dr. Drew Malloy, MD, Medical Director, Student Health Services

Seasonal Flu shots will once again be offered to students at the Student Health Center located across from the University Center and Colleges 9 & 10 on McLaughlin Drive.  The flu shot will significantly reduce your chances of being bedridden with influenza and missing class for a week. It lessens the chance that you will get your friends, coworkers and family sick when you return home during winter break.  The flu shot is strongly recommended for persons with asthma, diabetes and any disorder that weakens your immune system.  The flu shot is safe and effective.

Flu shots will be offered by reservation only at the Student Health Center on the following days and times:

Wed 10/8/14 10:00am-4:30pm           Thurs 10/9/14 10:00am-4:30pm         Fri 10/10/14 10:00am-4:30pm

In order to reduce waiting time, appointments are strongly encouraged and can only be made online on the Health e-Messenger website:


There is limited space, so please reserve early.  You will need your student ID card at the time of your appointment.

The influenza vaccine costs $25.00.  UC SHIP student insurance covers 100% of the charge for the influenza vaccine.  If you have outside insurance, you can submit your statement to your health insurance company. The $25 charge will go directly to your University account and a bill electronically mailed to you.  Not all companies cover these shots.  Please check your plan.

If the above dates are inconvenient, please contact the Student Health Center, your personal medical provider or research other off campus locations for flu shots via the following websites:



Please note that the cost of flu shots at off campus locations may vary from the Student Health Center cost.
