Flu Policy 2011
This entry should be read by both PERC Staff and Tech Squad Volunteers.
Once again, UMHS joins dozens of other health care institutions nationwide in requiring influenza (flu) vaccination or protective mask use during flu season.
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. Click on the following link for additional information and a list flu shot clinics.
Remember, it will be up to all of us to ensure that we prevent the spread of flu from those who work here to those who place themselves in our care. Thank you in advance for your help.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please let me know. --Lori
