Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH) has adopted a mandatory Influenza Vaccination policy for the 2019-2020 flu season.

The flu vaccination deadline has been extended to Monday, January 6, 2020.

All HMH team members, physicians, licensed independent practitioners, and adult volunteers MUST receive their flu vaccination or an approved exemption (Medical or Religious or Sincerely Held Belief) by Monday, January 6, 2020 under HMH’s mandatory Influenza Vaccination policy.

Check out where and when Occupational Health is providing free flu vaccinations throughout the network.

Anyone who continues to appear as non-compliant as of 12:01 AM on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 will not be permitted to return to work and will have up to 7 days to obtain the flu shot.  This will be unpaid time and you will receive a written warning for failing to comply. Those who have not received the shot within the 7 day period will result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
