The Flu and You AAAchOOO!!

Considering that the flu—a viral infection—kills about 36,000 Americans every year, immunization is critical for health care workers. It’s so important that, following Joint Commission and the CDC guidelines, all Hospital and Health System employees must either receive or decline the influenza vaccine.

Employees and staff with a valid Hopkins ID are eligible to receive a free vaccination. The inactivated influenza vaccine (injectable) and the live attenuated vaccine (FluMist) will be administered. There are no age restrictions for the inactivated flu vaccine, but the FluMist has certain criteria.

Remember to dress with your upper arm accessible on the day you wish to receive the vaccine, as there is no private area available in clinics.

Open Enrollment

By now you should have received your packet from Human Resources giving you the opportunity to change your benefit elections. The Hospital is offering flex benefit credits to employees who complete a short, confidential health risk assessment form. Check your plan carefully for details. Also new this year, employees with chronic conditions, such as asthma or diabetes, who complete the HRA form and agree to complete a care management program, will have no co-pay for their condition-related medications.
