2017 - 2018 Mandatory Flu Vaccination Program

For the safety of our patients, trainees, staff, faculty, physicians and students, a mandatory flu vaccination policy is in effect across Johns Hopkins Medicine. Implemented in 2012, this program is in line with a national movement to increase immunization rates among health care workers.

This year’s flu vaccination campaign begins in October 2017. Under the Johns Hopkins Medicine Influenza Vaccination Policy, every staff and faculty member, resident, postdoctoral fellow, medical student and volunteer who works with patients or works in a patient care area must receive a flu vaccination.

  • Johns Hopkins Medicine compliance deadline is Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017, with the exception of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, which has a deadline of Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017.
  • The deadline to request a medical or religious exception by Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017. The exception deadline for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is Friday, Oct. 27, 2017.
