Do it for you, your co-workers, our patients, and the community.

October will be here before you know it! This year, the timeframe to receive your flu vaccine or provide documentation that you received the vaccine elsewhere is October 1 through October 31, 2016. NOTE: Influenza vaccines must be received by October 31, 2016.

This year, flu vaccines will be administered during Safety Days, which are being held on the following dates and times in Classroom A and the Simulation Lab. Flu vaccines will be administered in the Simulation Lab:

  • Tuesday, October 11, 2016 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Friday, October 14, 2016 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Attending one of the Safety Days is a Mandatory Safety Initiative for Fort HealthCare. We strongly encourage you to receive your vaccine when you attend one of these Safety Days. For convenience and efficiency, we are anticipating most employees will be receiving their vaccine on one of these dates.


  • Employees who are under the age of 18 (minors) will need parental consent and will need to make an appointment at Business Health to receive the vaccine.
  • Flumist (intranasal flu vaccine) will not be available this year due to the ineffectiveness of the vaccine.
  • Flublok (vaccine for those who have a true egg allergy) will only be administered at Business Health.
  • The Vaccine Information Sheet (VIS) for the flu vaccine is available for further review in the Intranet Resource Library (under Business Health). The VIS will also be available at the time of administration.
  • Religious and medical waivers are available in the Intranet Resource Library (Infection Prevention) and MUST be turned in by October 1, 2016.

Please watch for additional information and updates on the hospital intranet site regarding employee influenza vaccines for 2016. If you have an influenza vaccine-related question please contact Business Health at (920) 568-5018.

REMEMBER: If you are participating in the Live Well program, you will earn 50 Live Well points for receiving your flu vaccine! You must enter your compliance in the Live Well portal to receive your points.
