Announcements for HUP

2016 Employee Flu Campaign is Here!

Over the past seven 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. Pennsylvania recognized Penn Medicine for this key patient safety initiative.

The 2016 Penn Medicine Employee Flu Campaign is an opportunity to continue our achievements. It has already begun as usual with the distribution of vaccine to high-risk clinical units and practices. Occupational Medicine Flu Vaccine Clinics will provide flu shots at a wide variety of locations. To ensure minimal waiting times and rapid documentation, bar-coded vaccine consent forms will again be available online to employees and faculty directly. You can find the times and locations of the Flu Vaccine Clinics and a link to your necessary bar-coded form – on the Intranet home page, under “What’s Hot.”
