Flu Vaccination Mandate 2021-2022

Beginning Nov. 19, 2021, the UC Office of the President is making influenza vaccinations mandatory for all faculty and other academic appointees, staff and students who will be working, living or learning on a UC campus anytime during the 2021-22 flu season.

Get Your Flu Vaccination Before Nov. 19.

Faculty and staff members in need of a flu vaccination should contact their primary care providers or visit their local pharmacy.

Vaccination appointments for students can be made online through the Student Health Patient Portal. More information is available at Student Health.

Faculty and staff members and students who receive flu vaccinations somewhere other than the on-campus clinic are asked to log onto the Student Health Patient Portal using their UCSBnetID and indicate the vaccination was received.

  • Visit the Student Health Patient Portal and sign in
  • Click on "Medical Clearances” from the menu on the left
  • Click on “Update” next to “2021-2022 Influenza (flu) Mandate Consent”
