INFLUENZA 2020 - 2021 SEASON

FY21 Seasonal Flu Campaign- Welcome to the Employee Health Home Page - We are highlighting the Health System Seasonal Flu Vaccination Campaign. Information, which will be expanded upon over time, is provided below.

COVID-19 Is Changing The UVA Flu Vaccination Campaign

Compliance Deadline Has Been Moved Up to November 13, 2020 

  • Vaccinate Employees Where They Work Rather Than In Large Clinics - accomplished by vaccinating employees where they work rather than in large clinics, by distributing “to go kits” provided to inpatient units, ambulatory clinics, and other work units employing clinicians qualified to give flu shots. In addition, Employee Health will be using clinical volunteers to take "To Go Kits" to non-clinical areas to provide on location vaccines. 
  • Employee Health Will NOT Be Providing Flu Shots - to existing employees in the Employee Health clinic, due to challenges to ensure social distancing.
  • Employees Can Also Receive A Flu Shot From Their PCP or A Local Pharmacy and provide documentation to Employee Health (1222 JPA), UVA-WorkMed (1910 Arlington Blvd), or have a designated vaccinator/ manager upload your documentation to the VaxTrax App -- UVA Pharmacy will NOT be providing flu vaccine to employees as to focus on patient care.
  •  As Per Health System Policy OCH-002, Employees are Able to Seek a Flu Vaccination Exemption.  Exemption Request may be submitted through the VaxTrax App.  Anyone who received an exemption last year has had their exemption automatically approved for this year.  An email was sent to exempted employees on September 1, 2020
  • Again this year, Quadrivalent Flu Vaccine Will Be Offered  -(Flulaval for people under 50 years of age and no egg allergy, Flublok for people > 50 or with an egg allergy).
  • If you have flu vaccination documentation and need a sticker, you can provide documentation in person to Employee Health, UVA-WorkMed, or arrange to provide it to one of the “To Go Kit” Coordinators/Volunteers below.

To Go Kit Locations  -  provide documentation and receive a 20'-21' flu sticker
