Thank you for all of your great help; we appreciate the good work you do for us.

Re: Absences. Please do both, call 734-232-4120 (leaving voice message is fine) and send two emails to 1/me (bmckinne@med.umich.edu) and 2/Amy Schroer, our new Librarian/Manager (alsc@umich.edu).

Emails and voice messages can be sent any time on previous days before your shift or no later than 8am the day you volunteer. Also, we appreciate when you plan in advance to schedule a day off. Thank you.

2012 Update for UMHS Flu Policy and Flu Vaccine Clinics

For All Volunteers and Staff:
Everyone who volunteers at the UMHS must receive a flu vaccine by November 30, 2012, 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.
