Flu Vaccinations

Due to Covid-19 and the need for social distancing, many aspects of the Annual Staff Influenza (flu) Vaccination Program will be different this year.  It is more critical than ever to get vaccinated as influenza and covid-19 have similar symptoms.

There are 3 options for flu vaccination:

  • Unit-based by a nurse in your department or floor

  • Large clinic in Folkman Auditorium (by appointment only)

  • Your local doctor's office or "minute clinic"

Deadline for vaccination is October 30, 2020. Click here to book your flu shot appointment.

How have we adapted to work from home?
