Get Your 2022 Flu Shot

Flu immunizations are now available for UC San Diego Health patients, including the high-dose flu vaccine recommended for people over age 65. Getting your flu shot early in the season is the best way to protect yourself against the flu this fall and winter.

How to Get Your Flu Shot

If you receive your flu shot from a provider outside UC San Diego Health, please update your MyUCSDChart account so your doctor knows you're protected from the flu this season.

 Drive-Up Flu Shots — By Appointment Only

UC San Diego Health patients ages 6 months and up can receive flu shots at our La Jolla drive-up with an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled for these times: 8 a.m. – 3:45 p.m., Monday through Saturday. (Holiday hours will vary.)

To make an appointment, log into MyUCSDChart and go to Visits, then select "Schedule an Appointment" and "Flu Vaccine." If you don't have a MyChart account, set one up or call 800-926-8273 for an appointment. Unscheduled arrivals will not be accepted. Note: Per CDC guidance, any driver who receives a vaccine will be asked to wait 15 minutes before leaving to monitor for adverse reactions and ensure that driving is safe.

  • Location: Parking lot P785 at 9460 Athena Circle, La Jolla (on UC San Diego Health's La Jolla medical campus, across from Radiation Oncology PET/CT Center)
