Flu Shots at Tang

Help yourself stay well this fall and winter.
To protect yourself, you need a flu shot every year.

Flu vaccination requirement for UC students, faculty and staff

UC Berkeley Faculty and Staff can get more details on the People and Culture Flu page.

UC Berkeley Students:

  • A flu vaccine is required for any students who are living or coming to campus.
  • We also want to encourage all students to get a flu vaccine as an important proactive health measure for protecting the community at large.  
  • Students can request a medical or religious exemption through the eTang portal by going to Messages, then selecting 'New Message' and choosing the option 'Select flu vaccine exemption (Students only)' and following the prompts.

  • You should also update your compliance on this form (CalNet login required), either by selecting you received a flu vaccine or submitted an exemption in eTang. 
  •  You will not get an enrollment hold or be charged a late fee.
  • We are asking that students voluntarily report that they received a flu vaccine, through the eTang. You can upload your records and enter your immunization date on the Medical Clearances page.
