The deadline to receive a flu vaccination (or receive approval for a valid exemption) was Dec. 1. For those who have still not been vaccinated, Occupational Health Services (OHS) is offering additional flu shot clinics. Tuberculosis (TB) tests are also available during these times for clinical staff who must be screened annually.
Appointments and walk-in hours are also available at the OHS Neville House and Lower Pike clinics. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to view hours and contact information. Peer-to-Peer nurses are also available to administer flu shots to all personnel on many inpatient units
and at some ambulatory clinics.
Personnel with a documented medical contraindication or those with sincerely held religious beliefs that prevent them from receiving the flu shot may qualify for an exemption. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to download the exemption forms and view submission requirements.
