Flu policy 2010

Dear volunteers,

This year the 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.

This means that everyone who volunteers at the health system must receive a flu vaccine by Dec. 1, 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.

The flu shots are free for volunteers. This website has additional information and a list flu shot clinics.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
