According to the new Mandatory Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Policy (HSE048) everyone must receive the influenza vaccine or possess an approved qualified exception as defined by the above policy. The vaccine is provided free to all physicians, faculty, staff, students, volunteers and personnel.
Note that these requirements do not apply to JHU (non school of medicine) employees who are 100% remote—that is, those who never visit any Johns Hopkins facility or conduct business in any public setting on Johns Hopkins’ behalf. However, we strongly encourage all employees to be vaccinated.
Vendors must show proof of having received the influenza vaccine before conducting business or working within a Johns Hopkins building.
As defined by the above policy, everyone who has not received the influenza vaccine must wear a mask within 6 feet of a patient during the flu season. The mask must be worn during the time period from November 18, 2022 to May 15, 2023. Vaccinated staff will receive black ID badge clip.
