Flu Vaccinations

Creighton University:

As a reminder, the flu vaccine is required for all health sciences students and encouraged for all other students, faculty and staff. Learn more about immunization requirements.

Valleywise Health:   

We are committed to the safety of our patients, employees, students and others during the upcoming flu season. We will be continuing our “Mandatory Flu Vaccine” requirement for all employees, residents and providers working remotely or within one of the Valleywise Health locations. The flu vaccine has been mandatory, as standard practice, at many health care organizations across the United States for many years now. With the continued impact of COVID-19 on community and health care environments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is strongly supportive of this recommendation.  

Influenza vaccination is readily available throughout the organization or by contacting the team at Employee Health and Wellness (EH&W). Deadline for receiving the influenza vaccination is Dec. 1, 2021. 

If you believe you have a documented medical condition or religious belief that will prevent you from complying with the mandatory flu vaccination requirement, please schedule a visit with EH&W to review your case. Please see the following updated information from the CDC to prepare for the 2021-22 flu season. 

To read more about the importance of the flu vaccine/vaccination within the Valleywise Health system, please visit the CDC website. If you have questions specific to your health, please contact EH&W to schedule a visit. If you have general questions about the flu vaccination requirement, please reach out to your supervisor for clarification and further information.
