2014 Employee Flu Campaign Starts Soon!

Over the past five years, more than 98% of HUP and UPHS employees have been vaccinated for seasonal influenza. Getting the flu vaccine reduces the risk of illness for our staff and helps keep our patients, colleagues, and families safe and healthy. UPHS has been recognized by the State of Pennsylvania for this key patient safety initiative.

The 2014 Penn Medicine Employee Flu Campaign is an opportunity to continue our achievements. It has already begun with the distribution of vaccine to high-risk clinical units and practices. The Occupational Medicine Flu Vaccine Clinics will follow at a wide variety of locations, starting Wednesday, October 8.
