University Health Services and the College of Pharmacy will be providing UTHSC employees and students with FREE flu vaccines on October 6–9 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Student-Alumni Center (SAC) on the Memphis campus. Additional dates may be added depending on the supply of vaccines.

Flu vaccines are mandatory this year for all UT employees and students, unless you have documentation to support an exemption. Students must request a waiver from their college. If approved, the student submits the waiver to Verified Credentials and they will update the student's file.

Verification of vaccine administration will be provided during the visit. Please retain a copy of this form for your records, as proof of administration will not be readily available.
