Beginning Oct. 31, employees who haven’t received a flu vaccination are required to wear a surgical/procedural mask in patient care areas during flu season, through April 30.
UF Health Shands Occupational Health Services, or OHS, and the UF Student Health Care Center, or SHCC, staff are hosting numerous onsite flu vaccination events throughout October. When both OHS and SHCC staff are on site, all UF faculty, staff and students; UF Health Shands employees and volunteers; and credentialed ARNPs, physician assistants and medical staff can receive a free flu vaccination. All employees must present their ID badge and those receiving a vaccination through SHCC also need an insurance card. Here are upcoming OHS/SHCC flu vaccination events:
