St. Mary's 2016 Flu Vaccination Campaign
For the safety of our staff and those we are privileged to serve, St. Mary's is again requiring that all associates, physicians, volunteers, students and contracted workers receive the mandatory* flu vaccination by Thursday, November 10.
Requesting an Exemption
Associates who plan to request an exemption must submit the appropriate form no later than Thursday, September 8. Please carefully review the exemption requirements below, as the Medical Exemption process has changed:
- All new exemption requests will have a strict deadline of September 8 for the current workforce, absent any extenuating circumstances. These exemption requests must be forwarded to St.Vincent by fax to 317.583.2720 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This fax number is directed to an automated RightFax server, so associates will not receive a confirmation notice until after the Exemption Request Review Board meets on September 30.
- Medical Exemptions that were approved in the exemption process during the 2015-2016 flu season will be reviewed by the Exemption Request Review Board for renewal and notification prior to the September 8 deadline. Associates do not need to resubmit forms from physician sign-off unless requested.
- Religious/Spiritual Exemptions that were approved in the exemption process during the 2015-2016 flu season will not be automatically renewed. Associates who wish to request a Religious/Spiritual Exemption for 2016-2017 must complete and submit the form (linked below) prior to September 8 for review by the Exemption Request Review Board.
- Exemption forms and other documents can be found under "Important Documents".
