Employee flu shot clinics taking place this week

Immunizations kicked off on Monday at Asante hospitals with more clinics scheduled for next week and beyond. Get your flu shot and 2020-2021 badge ring!

flu-iconAsante’s annual employee flu immunization campaign began yesterday at AACH with more clinics scheduled throughout the week on hospital campuses. To reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission, employees who work outside the hospitals are encouraged to get their shots at clinics for remote workers inside the Epic offices the following week, at an Asante Pharmacy and Asante Employee Health.

Employees are asked to not come in groups and stand six feet apart while waiting. Several flu-shot clinics are scheduled on each campus with more “pop-up” clinics and unit rounding planned throughout the fall. Schedules will be posted on the myAsanteNET flu page.

Tables will be set up in hospital open areas, so employees can get immunized on the spot, no appointment needed. Asante Physician Partners and Asante Contact Center employees will be given flu shots at their facilities.

Key points to note:

  • Employees should have completed a flu education module in ALEC (HealthStream).
  • All vaccinated employees, volunteers, students and medical staff will receive a 2020–2021 badge ring indicating they received the flu shot.
  • Masking is required in all Asante facilities in accordance with the Universal Pandemic Precautions policy.
  • Employees who cannot or choose not to get a flu shot must submit a declination form to Asante Employee Health by Nov. 30.
  • The same deadline applies for those who got a flu shot elsewhere and need to submit an attestation form to get their badge ring.

Patients are already being screened for flu, so Asante Infection Prevention encourages employees to be immunized well before the flu season starts to help limit the spread of influenza. To download forms and get the latest on events, visit the 2020-2021 Flu Season page on myAsanteNET.
