Flu Reminders

(From the November 2012 issue of Inside Nationwide Children's)

Flu season sends thousands of kids through our doors each year. Because the flu can be very serious, we recommend a flu vaccine for everyone over the age of six months. Every year. Please help to vaccinate patients this season.

And don’t forget - the deadline to receive the seasonal influenza vaccine is Friday, November 30 at 4 p.m. This means that employees need to receive the vaccine by this time or submit documentation showing they had the vaccine at another location (i.e. doctor’s office, pharmacy). Employees can submit waivers for religious or medical reasons, which are reviewed on a case by case basis.
