Required Flu Vaccines

All SMPH employees (including student employees and zero-dollar, temporary, and part-time appointments) are required to receive an influenza vaccination annually. This requirement is for all employees regardless of work location. If you have a valid medical, religious, or personal reason that prohibits you from receiving an influenza vaccine, you may submit an influenza vaccine medical waiver or influenza vaccine religious belief or personal conviction waiver.
As an SMPH employee, you must provide proof of vaccination or have a completed waiver on file by Monday, December 5, 2022. Waivers need to be filed annually.
If you receive your vaccine at a UHS clinic, then your information is automatically reported, and you do not need to submit documentation.
However, if you receive your shot through any other avenue, you must submit proof. Proof of vaccination and waivers may be sent to:
