Get Your Flu Vaccine by Nov. 1
WakeMed’s annual flu vaccine program runs through Tuesday, Nov. 1, so now is the time to get your flu shot! Vaccines are available free of charge to all WakeMed employees at all locations. This year we are offering vaccines that are egg-free and preservative free but we will not be offering flu-mist. A few reminders about our annual flu program:
Any employee who fails to receive a flu vaccine, renew a previously approved exemption, or obtain a new exemption from Occupational Health & Safety by 4 pm on Nov. 1 will be ineligible to work at any WakeMed facility, and employment will be terminated.
If you receive the vaccine somewhere else (physician office, pharmacy, etc.), you must provide proof of immunization to Occupational Health by Nov. 1.
Limited exemptions will be considered for medical contraindication and religious reasons. Exemption Request forms are available on the WakeMedWeb.
For more information, contact Occupational Health at ext. 07370 (Raleigh Campus), ext. 02631 (Cary Hospital) or ext. 01685 (WakeMed North).
