Respirator fit testing deadline in June 15

Those who need to be respirator-compliant should check the Health and Wellness Information Portal to confirm that they are completely compliant with your N-95 respirator services. The deadline in June 15.


If you need to be fit tested, please visit the Vanderbilt Environmental Health and Safety website to see the dates and times that we offer walk-in open fit testing sessions.


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.
