According to CDC guidelines, annual flu vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older, with rare exceptions, because it is an effective way to decrease flu illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths. This season, all flu vaccines will be designed to protect against the four flu viruses that research indicates will be most common. (Visit Vaccine Virus Selection for this season’s vaccine composition.)
UCF Students can get their flu shot at Student Health Services with no out-of-pocket cost. No appointment or proof of insurance is necessary. Walk-ins are available Monday through Friday until 4:30!
To get a flu shot, patients can request to be vaccinated as part of their scheduled in-person appointment with Student Health Services, or via walk-up accessibility at the Health Center. Vaccines are also available at our satellite clinics located at the Downtown and College of Medicine campuses.
Faculty & Staff
Faculty and staff are welcome to get vaccinated through Student Health Services. Your in-network insurance card must be on file so Student Health Services can bill your insurance, with charges filed as part of your preventative benefits coverage.

- You must not have a fever when you get the flu shot. Not sure? Ask us!
- You must bring your UCF ID.
