Submit Your Flu Vaccination Information Now

Section 1

October 27, 2021

Dear colleagues,

On October 8, 2021, UC President Michael V. Drake issued an executive order requiring that all UC faculty and staff receive or decline the 2021-22 flu vaccination on or before November 19, 2021. 

To comply with this order, please visit the UCI Occupational Health Campus Portal; select the “Seasonal Flu Vaccination” option and follow the steps. You are not required to provide documentation to confirm you received the flu vaccine or to support your reason for declining the vaccination. 

If you decline to receive the flu vaccination, you will be required to mask while on UC and UCI property through the end of the 2021-22 flu season, the date of which is unknown at this time (usually March or April). You will be required to mask even if masking requirements for COVID-19 are modified or revoked prior to the flu season end date.

For support, please direct all questions to UCI’s Employee Experience Center (EEC) at eec@uci.edu or call 949.824.0500, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
