Employee Health will be offering the flu vaccine beginning Monday, Oct. 4 to UofL Health – UofL Hospital, UofL Health – Jewish Hospital, UofL Health – Brown Cancer Center, UofL Health – Frazier Rehabilitation Institute and UofL Health – Shelbyville Hospital, as well as UofL Health – UofL Physicians.
UofL Health – Mary & Elizabeth Hospital and UofL Health – Peace Hospital are anticipating delivering vaccines the week of Oct. 11.
More information is to come on the process for UofL Health – Medical Center East, Northeast, South and Southwest.
To maintain social distancing due to COVID-19, Employee Health will not be offering the vaccine during the normal kick-off days. Instead, there will be multiple opportunities to receive the flu vaccine via rounding that will take place on all shifts, including weekends, over the next several weeks.
For UofL Physicians team members, please continue to work with the Employee Health offices you have reached out to in the past for vaccine and scheduling.
Please do not come to Employee Health for the flu vaccine unless you contact the office to make special arrangements. Social distancing cannot be maintained if we have employees lined up outside of the Employee Health office. Once the majority of staff have received the vaccine, Employee Health will provide options for receiving the immunization at the office if earlier opportunities were missed.
All employees, contractors, students, vendors, etc., must have documentation of receiving the flu vaccine by Nov. 15.
If you receive your flu vaccine from outside of UofL Health – Pharmacy Services, please be sure to request a vaccination record from the organization in which you received your flu vaccine. Email a copy of the record to OCCMed@UofLHealth.org. You can also fax a copy of your flu vaccination record to the following numbers:
- UofL Health team members – 502-562-4514
- UofL Physicians team members – 502-588-7526
Medical or religious exemption forms and documentation must be submitted by Nov. 15.
