Employees, physicians, allied staff, volunteers, contractors, consultants, and students working at Penn Medicine Princeton Health facilities must receive a flu vaccination — or have a documented medical or religious exemption — by Monday, November 25.
All individuals subject to the vaccine requirement may get flu shots at their doctors’ offices, pharmacies, or other locations and submit a form documenting compliance with Princeton Health’s policy.

Mandatory vaccination of health care workers helps protect patients, visitors, and coworkers from exposure to seasonal influenza. Some individuals, particularly older adults, pregnant women, very young children, and people with various medical conditions, are susceptible to serious health complications from the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that individuals 6 months of age and older receive a vaccination every flu season.
