Colleagues choosing to have a flu jab this year can be reimbursed via the expenses process

In order to help protect members of the University and wider York community, UoY staff who are not eligible for a free flu vaccination will be reimbursed if they choose to have a flu jab.

Check if you are eligible for a free NHS flu jab

The flu jab is being offered for free to adults in certain groups and to those with certain long-term health conditions. Visit the NHS website for the latest details and to check your eligibility for a free jab.

If you are eligible from a free vaccination you may receive an invitation to get vaccinated, but you do not have to wait for this before booking an appointment.

Arranging a paid for flu jab

If you would like a flu jab this year, but you are not eligible for a free one, you can book at many local supermarkets or pharmacies.

Claiming back the cost of your flu jab

A Flu jab will cost between £10.00 and £20.00 from most providers. To claim this back from the University, complete an expenses claim form, following the standard University expenses process.

Visit the finance pages to access the form and instructions on the expenses process.

Authorising expenses for flu jabs
