All faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to obtain the seasonal flu vaccine.

    • UNC Hospitals Occupational Health - UNC Hospitals is willing to provide vaccinations to clinical faculty in order to protect our patients. However, all clinical faculty are asked to use the University's Occupational Health Clinic because the vaccinations are budgeted and tracked through that clinic, which is run by the Department of Medicine. If you are offered a vaccine by a traveling flu clinic while in the hospitals, please be aware that the staff adminstering the vaccine will need your PID to keep track of the number of university employees obtaining vaccines from them. Get your PID here.
