(From the November/December issue of Inside Nationwide Children's)
The benefits of vaccination extend well beyond just keeping you flu-free. Employees who vaccinate are also protecting our patients and their family members. Visit ANCHOR for a full list of scheduled vaccination clinics. Again this year, the flu vaccine is mandatory for all employees. The deadline for vaccination is 4 p.m. on Friday, November 29. If you receive the vaccine at another location (i.e. doctor’s office, pharmacy) you’ll need to submit documentation to Employee Health. You can request exemptions as specified in Infection Control Policy IV:50. Exemptions should be submitted by 4 p.m. on November 29.
