Last Chance for Flu Shot Medical Abstentions – Due Oct. 30

Oct 28, 2016

If you have not yet obtained your annual flu shot as part of the annual mandatory employee flu shot program, please click here to check the schedule of flu shot clinics to find a location and date that works for you. More dates have been added to the schedule in Sayre. Egg free vaccines have now arrived and are available during all flu shot clinics.

Requests for exception of the influenza vaccine for valid medical and/or religious reasons require the appropriate documentation. Please note that all forms must be completed and returned, with appropriate documentation to the Employee Health Office (EHO) by Oct. 30. No forms will be accepted after this date.

Guthrie believes that our patients have the right to assume that health care personnel will take all reasonable measures to reduce and avoid transmission of preventable diseases, including influenza. Therefore, all employees, medical staff members, students, and volunteers must have the seasonal influenza vaccine prior to Dec. 1.

Questions regarding the vaccination may be directed to Employee Health at 570-887-2683.
