Staff and Faculty Flu Shot Clinics

Flu Season is Here

Flu season is right around the corner. It is more important than ever to get a flu vaccine this year.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes it’s likely that flu viruses and COVID-19 will both be spreading this fall and winter. So, you’ll want to take every precaution you can, including getting a flu vaccine.

NC State Faculty and Staff have several available options to receive their annual flu shot.


Flu Shot Options

On-Campus Clinics

University Human Resources is sponsoring appointment only vaccination clinics on campus this fall. State Health Plan members, enrolled dependents age 18+, and pre-age 65 retirees on the retiree health plan are eligible for a FREE flu vaccination at the NC State campus clinics.

Faculty and Staff clinics will be annouced in late September 2021 in coordination with the State Health Plan’s scheduling process.

Additional Options

Starting September 13th, Faculty and staff can receive a flu shot from Student Health Services by making an appointment at Student Health online via the HealthyPack Portal or by calling 919.515.2563.

More information on flu shot appointments or clinics offered by Student Health, please visit Student Health Flu Shots or by calling 919.515.2563.

You will need to upload a copy of your insurance card to the HealthyPack Portal prior to your flu shot appointment. You will check-in for your flu shot appointment before entering student health using the same process as a provider visit. Student Health Services accepts the following insurance plans: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, Student Blue, Tricare, and United Healthcare. *If you have been displaying symptoms or not feeling well leading up to or on the day of your appointment or have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past two weeks, we ask that you reschedule your flu shot appointment for a later date..

Not enrolled in the State Health Plan or want additional options? Contact your local public health department, your health care provider or visit vaccinefinder.org to find a convenient location to get a flu vaccination near you.

Flu Season Information
