Memo: Flu Vaccine Reminder

To: All Staff

From: Kyle Benoit, Senior VP & Chief Operating Officer

Date: November 8, 2021

Subject: Flu vaccine reminder

As a commitment to provide the safest environment for our patients and staff, I want to remind every Riverside team member of our annual requirement to receive a flu vaccine. While Riverside Healthcare instituted this policy seven years ago, today it is a common requirement among healthcare systems throughout the country.

All staff members need to receive their flu shot by November 16, 2021. Please refer to the Influenza Vaccination Program policy in PolicyStat if you need more information on this requirement.

While the flu vaccine is readily available at a variety of retail pharmacies, we recommend receiving your free vaccine through Employee Health.

If you have already received your flu vaccine, thank you for taking this measure to help protect yourself, your patients, and your community. If you still need to receive your flu vaccine, the flu vaccine clinic schedule is below for your convenience. Please make an appointment in MyChart to schedule your vaccine.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach Employee Health at ext. 35503.


Wednesday, November 103 to 5 p.m.Risk Conference Room
Thursday, November 118 to 11 a.m. Risk Conference Room
