Flu Vaccination Information
If you have not received your flu vaccination, you can still do so by visiting Occupational Health at the Neville House. All personnel must attest their flu vaccination status in PeopleSoft, unless you received the vaccine from Occupational Health, which automatically enters the attestation for you. Unvaccinated personnel are required to wear a mask in clinical areas or face corrective action. Occupational Health Services’ walk-in hours for vaccination are Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, 7–9 a.m.; Wednesdays, 2–3 p.m., or by appointment (call 617-732-6034). The expanded Peer-to-Peer Program also continues to offer flu vaccinations.
