Flu Policy 2012

This entry should be read by both PERC Staff and Tech Squad Volunteers.

Hello Volunteers:

As was done in the past, UMHS has joined with 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 December 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.

Flu shots are free for volunteers. Click on the following link for additional information and a list of flu shot clinics.

Those of you who will be getting the shot, you must show your UMHS blue registration card at the time you get your shot. Also, please ask/remind the person giving you the shot that you will need the 2012 sticker showing proof that you received the shot. The sticker is placed on your volunteer badge. icker placed on your Volunteer Badge before you leave.

Remember, it is up to us to ensure that we prevent the spread of flu from those who work and volunteer here to those who place themselves in our care.

If you haave any quesitons regarding this policy, please let me know.
