Flu vaccinations for the 2023-2024 flu season are now available on and off campus. The University of Miami has procured vaccines from Sanofi Pasteur for this season. For more information, please visit the Sanofi flu website.

There are three types of flu vaccinations available:

Fluzone Quadrivalent

Persons 6 months of age and older

Fluzone High-Dose Quadrivalent

Persons 65 years of age and older

Flublok Quadrivalent

Persons who are allergic to egg proteins

All flu vaccines will given by appointment only, unless otherwise noted.

For more than two years, we have diligently worked together to protect ourselves and each other throughout a global pandemic. Our vigilance in adhering to protocols has been the foundation to our long-term success, and staying up to date with vaccinations has played a large part in safeguarding the health of our University of Miami community.

That is why UHealth has required all designated health care workers to be vaccinated.  It includes everyone in our hospitals and community-based clinics, as well a those in roles (clinical or non-clinical) with regular patient contact.  Coral Gables and Marine campus employees are not required to be vaccinated this flu season but CDC highly recommends vaccinating all individuals.

Flu vaccinations received at alternative off-campus locations and requests for exemptions must be reported through Workday. Find details on vaccination sites and reporting procedure below.
