Vaccine exemption request deadline is today

All influenza vaccine exemption requests from staff and faculty are due Thursday, Oct. 1. Influenza vaccination exemption requests must be submitted here.

An exemption may be requested for: 1) a medical reason or severe allergy to a vaccine component; or 2) a deeply held religious or spiritual belief.

During flu season, those with approved exemptions from influenza vaccination will have the ability to work by wearing a mask that covers the nose and mouth while in patient care areas (both procedural and diagnostic).
