2022-2023 Flu Free Vaccination Program

Flu Vaccinations

UTMB Health offers free flu shots to its employees and volunteers each year to help prevent the spread of seasonal influenza. 

As a condition of continued employment, all health care workers must get an annual flu shot or formally decline the vaccination by signing this statement. This institutional requirement applies to anyone who provides direct patient care, enters patient rooms and/or comes within six feet of patients in the course of their duties. All other members of the UTMB community are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated, unless prohibited for medical reasons.

Vaccination Locations

UTMB's 2022-2023 Flu Free vaccination program is provided in partnership with UT SELECT, a PPO plan administered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, and the quadrivalent influenza vaccine is available at the locations identified below and at all UTMB clinics and inpatient units.

As you prepare for vaccination, please note:

  • UTMB will not be providing the new COVID booster—designed to protect against the now-dominant BA.4/BA.5 strains—as a part of the 2022-2023 Flu Free vaccination program.
    • The booster can be scheduled through MyChart or the UTMB COVID vaccine website.
    • It can also be given at the time of a scheduled visit if the clinic has the booster in stock.
    • If you do not live or work in UTMB’s clinical service area, contact your local provider or pharmacies in your area for more information on availability.
  • You must present a valid UTMB employee badge to receive the vaccination.
  • The high-dose quadrivalent influenza vaccine is available only at the Employee Health Clinics on the Galveston and League City campuses for those 65 years of age and older.
  • Health care workers who get a flu shot at a non-UTMB facility must provide Employee Health with acceptable proof of vaccination.
  • Health care workers who get a flu shot will receive a 2022-2023 Flu Free card that must be worn with their UTMB employee badge throughout the flu season.
