VUMC deadline for flu vaccines is Jan. 3

Flu season is in full swing, and as health care professionals, we strive to keep ourselves, our patients and our community members safe and healthy. By receiving your flu vaccine, you support our goal in promoting a healthier community.

As a reminder, VUMC faculty and staff are required to meet compliance requirements for flu vaccination by Jan. 3.

Through the FLUla-2-Uza program, getting your flu shot is quick and convenient! You can obtain your flu vaccine at any of the following locations:

  • Visit an Occupational Health Clinic (OHC) location.
    • Medical Arts Building, 6th Floor (Nashville) on Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-4 p.m.
    • Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks (Nashville) on Thursdays, 8-11:30 a.m. in VPEC Suite 21100).
    • Walk-in services are provided for both locations. No appointments are necessary.
