Participation in the CommonSpirit Health flu program is required by all employees, physicians, volunteers, students, and others by the deadline of Nov. 3, 2023. Flu season in the Pacific Northwest generally takes place between November and March. Take action now to protect yourself, your family, your patients and community.
Participation in the CommonSpirit Health flu program includes receiving a 2023 flu vaccine and completing the flu vaccine attestation or submitting a personal declination. Everyone who chooses to receive the vaccine will need to submit proof of their flu vaccination via Employee Health (VMMC and VM regional medical center employees) or EmployeeCentral (other care site employees).
VMFH is offering team members the flu vaccine through mass dispensing events. Advance registration to receive your vaccine is not required. These events will include regular rounding events at each of our care sites. Please consult the following calendar for flu vaccine dispensing near you. Managers have been requested to make every effort to grant their team members time to participate in the program during mass dispensing events.

For employees who receive the flu vaccine from a non-VMFH event:
