Flu Vaccine Requirement

Flu shots are required for those working at USC locations by Monday, Nov. 1, and they are a fully-covered benefit under USC health plans.

  • On-site faculty and staff are welcome to get theirs at no cost from USC Pharmacies.
    • Faculty and university staff who are vaccinated through the USC Pharmacies will automatically have this updated in their MySHR health records. This may take 48-72 hours to be reflected in your records.
    • Faculty and university staff who receive vaccinations through other providers and pharmacy retailers should save a copy of their record showing their name, date of birth, and vaccine/date administered and upload to MySHR.
  • Faculty and university staff with medical, religious, or philosophical objections may submit a medical exemption request form or religious/philosophical exemption request form.
    • Exemption forms may be uploaded in the “Upload Documentation” section of the secure health record portal, MySHR.
