The immunizations are funded by UC’s ‘Hero Bearcats’ program, which launched in April 2019 as part of the university’s bicentennial celebration.

“Hero Bearcats was created to engage the community and celebrate the people and places that make Cincinnati such a great place to live,” said Martin Ludwig, director of trademarks & licensing for UC. “We are proud to announce that sponsorship income from the campaign is being directed to scholarships and to supporting vulnerable members of the community through the Bearcats Pantry and free flu shots. We are glad that Hero Bearcats has brought people together and enabled the university to make a meaningful impact to support vulnerable members of the community.”

Beginning on Jan. 6, the Cincinnati Health Department will provide flu shots at each of its seven health clinics across the city, including the Ambrose H. Clement Health Center operated by UC Health. The immunizations will be administered by UC Health and health department clinicians.
