Johns Hopkins 2021-22 Flu Campaign
Flu vaccine for Johns Hopkins employees is here! The inactivated influenza vaccine (injectable) will be administered to Hopkins employees beginning September 20, 2021. (Please see locations & schedules below).
The Johns Hopkins Institutions require health care providers to have annual influenza vaccination or possess an approved qualified exception. Please review the Mandatory Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Policy (HSE048) for more information.
The Influenza vaccine will be administered to Physicians, Faculty, Staff, Employees, Students and Volunteers by Occupational Health Services as listed below.
Johns Hopkins will be partnering with Walgreens during the 2021-22 flu season. Walgreens pharmacists will be giving our employees the flu vaccine, both on-site and at all Walgreens retail locations.
Important Things To Know:
- Onsite Vaccinations - To comply with physical distancing guidelines. You must make an appointment to receive your flu vaccine. (How to schedule a flu shot appointment)
- Walgreens Vaccinations - You must either print out a voucher (JHED ID & PW required) or display the voucher on your phone at the time of service to receive the vaccine at Walgreens. No appointments necessary, walk-ins available. You must upload proof of receiving the vaccine to VMS.
- Onsite & Walgreens Vaccinations - To help expedite your visit, please fill out the vaccination form prior to your appointment, have a valid Hopkins ID/badge and bring both with you.
- Vaccinated Outside - If vaccinated outside of a Johns Hopkins mass vaccine clinic or Unit Champion (i.e. Primary Care, CVS, Safeway, etc.), a proof of immunization must be provided to Occupational Health Services to receive credit for the vaccination. This applies even if your provider that gave the vaccine is within the Hopkins network.

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 who work in a Johns Hopkins owned building.
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 19, 2021 to May 15, 2022. Vaccinated staff will receive purple ID badge clip.
