Annual Re-fits can attend ALL available sessions. If this is your first time being fitted at VUMC, you can only attend the Initial sessions.

Reminder: Individuals must have no presence of facial hair/stubble, OR have a mustache/goatee that does not interfere with where the

N-95 seals to the face to be Fit Tested. Shaving the same day as the fit test is recommended.

Check out this video to see acceptable facial hair styles for N-95 use.
