Each year, about 36,000 people die from the flu. These deaths can be prevented. Requiring that our physicians and staff who enter clinical areas receive an annual flu vaccine protects our patients, visitors, co-workers and families. Making the flu vaccine mandatory is a step that has already been taken by many of the health care systems in Maryland and by many hospitals throughout the nation.

Each Johns Hopkins Medicine member organization has adopted its own policy supporting this important institution-wide effort to protect our patients. Please choose your employer (listed below) and read the policy to learn more.
