Employee Flu Vaccine Campaign Starts – UntilDecember 10
There’s still time to get your free flushot!
As you know, Penn Medicine has joinedleading health care organizations across the country in requiring seasonal fluimmunization for all faculty, staff, students, volunteers and contractedpersonnel in order to protect patients, employees, family members and thecommunity from influenza infection through annual immunization.Over past recentyears, 99 percent of PAH and UPHS employees have been vaccinated for seasonalinfluenza. Getting the flu vaccine reduces the risk of illness for our staffand helps keep our patients, colleagues, and families safe and healthy. UPHShas been recognized by the State of Pennsylvania for this key patient safetyinitiative.
Provided at PAH free of charge, seasonalinfluenza vaccines are needed annually for maximum protection. The 2012-13seasonal influenza vaccine protects against the three most likely influenzastrains expected to circulate this year, all of which are different from thosein the prior year’s vaccine.
In order toreceive seasonal flu vaccine through Employee Health, employees must have apre-printed, bar-coded EmployeeInfluenza Vaccination Consent Form. The Form is pre-printedwith the employee’s name, department and job title.
