Flu Vaccine Deadline Approaching December 1

The Employee deadline to receive the flu vaccine or submit a personal declination for the flu vaccine is quickly approaching on Dec. 1, 2022.

Employee Health will offer the following flu clinics:

  • North – Nov. 28 | 6am – 5pm | Admin Lobby
  • Infirmary – Nov. 29 | 6am – 5pm | Terrace Room
  • Hot Springs – Nov. 30 | 6am – 5pm | Mercy Room

To help reduce influenza infection rates and prevent negative outcomes, flu vaccination is highly recommended for most people. The benefits of flu vaccination include a reduced risk of infection, severe illness, hospitalization, and death. Pregnant people and anyone with a chronic disease have a greater risk of flu complications if contracted, and vaccination protects these populations. Look for more details from your local Employee Health department or HR representative. You may also view these FAQs for more details.

Document Your Flu Vaccine or Decline a Flu Vaccine in EmployeeCentral

If you received your flu vaccine at an outside pharmacy, such as Walmart or Walgreens, please make sure you turn your documentation in on EmployeeCentral. If you don’t plan to get a flu vaccination this year, you also need to go to EmployeeCentral and document that. Click here to download the step-by-step instructions for doing either of these things. Employees who received their flu vaccines through Employee Health don’t have to take any action.
