As you may be aware, New York State just enacted an emergency regulation requiring that certain personnel working at medical centers receive the influenza vaccines, both seasonal and H1N1, as a condition of employment. This means that all .... employees who have direct contact with patients, and all staff who have regular contact with these employees, are required to receive the vaccine for both the seasonal flu and the H1N1 virus. If you are required to have annual TB testing (e.g., PPD skin testing), you are required to get the flu shots. No employee is exempt from this regulation unless he or she has formal written documentation of a medically valid reason for not receiving the vaccine from a licensed healthcare provider. All employees are strongly encouraged to get immunized as soon as possible and no later than November 30.
