With flu season around the corner, it’s important that everyone take the necessary precautions to stay safe and healthy. The exact timing of flu season varies, but activity often begins to increase in October and peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May.

It is strongly recommended that all USC faculty and university staff receive vaccinations for the 2022-2023 influenza season.
How to get your flu shot
USC Health Plans is sponsoring flu vaccinations at no cost for all USC faculty and staff at the following USC Pharmacies:
- Student Union (UPC)
- Medical Plaza (HSC)
- Verdugo Hills (Glendale)
Appointments are preferred and can be scheduled here. Walk-ins are also accepted. Vaccinations through USC Pharmacies are automatically updated in your employee health records in MySHR – it may take one week to be reflected in your records.
Employees and their dependents enrolled in USC PPO, EPO Plus, or EPO plans can visit any contracted Navitus pharmacy and have their flu vaccination fully covered when they present their plan ID card, or they may visit their primary care physician and have the vaccination covered under their medical benefits as preventive care service.
