Roll Up Your Sleeves Early for the Flu Vaccine

Gail Grant, MD, MPH, gets a flu shot from Amanda Mongiello, RN.

Flu season is unpredictable so physicians are advised to get their flu vaccination early. Free flu shots are now available to all members of the medical staff and can be obtained at one of our convenient flu shot clinics or at Employee Health Services, located on the second floor of the Steven Spielberg Building.

"Our goal this year is to ensure that at least 85 percent of our direct patient care providers get the flu shot. We are asking all medical staff to help lead the way by not only getting vaccinated but also by urging other care providers to do the same to help protect their patients, themselves and their families," says Rekha Murthy, MD, director of Hospital Epidemiology. "Please encourage your colleagues, staff and patients to get the flu shot."
