Update for UMHS Flu Policy and Flu Vaccine Clinics 2011

For All Volunteers and Staff:

UMHS joins dozens of other health care institutions nationwide in requiring influenza (flu) vaccination or protective mask use during flu season. This requirement applies to all members of the UMHS community who interact face-to-face with our patients in any way.

Everyone who volunteers at the health system must receive a flu vaccine by December 01, 2011, or will be required to wear a surgical or isolation mask for all face-to-face patient interactions or when entering patient rooms during flu season, which typically lasts several months.

Flu shots are free for both staff and volunteers. The below websites have additional information and a list of flu shot clinics. Please let us know if you have any questions.
