Flu vaccination or mask now required

it’s not too late to get your flu shot.

With the Oct. 30 flu vaccination deadline behind us, faculty, staff, students and volunteers without a green flu vaccination sticker on their badge are required to wear a surgical/procedural mask in UF Health Shands, UF Health Physicians and other patient care areas during flu season, through March 31.

It’s not too late to get your vaccination.

The following workers can visit UF Health Shands Occupational Health Services for a free flu shot:

  • UF Health Shands employees and volunteers
  • UF Health Physicians employees
  • UF College of Medicine faculty physicians, residents and fellows
  • Credentialed ARNPs
  • Credentialed physician assistants
  • Credentialed medical staff

Other UF faculty and staff can contact the UF Student Health Care Center regarding flu vaccinations.

Once you receive your flu vaccination, you will be required to wear a mask in patient care areas for two more weeks until the vaccine provides full immunity.

If you received your vaccination elsewhere, submit proof of vaccination to OHS to get a sticker for your badge.

OHS is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and is located at UF Health Shands Hospital (north campus), Room 1004.
