Influenza Vaccine Program
The influenza (flu) vaccine is a benefit for all Vanderbilt University and Medical Center faculty and staff. Yearly flu vaccination helps to reduce sick time, medical costs and the spread of flu in the community.
The Occupational Health Clinic has closed the 2012-2013 Influenza season for the year. Please visit the Occupational Health website for information about the 2013-2014 season at a later date in the year.
OHC offers influenza vaccine through multiple venues to make vaccination easy and convenient. Each year we have a large kickoff event where people can get their vaccine very quickly. This event is called “Flulapalooza!” and is usually in early to mid October.
In addition to Flulapalooza, vaccine is available each year through the end of March in the Occupational Health Clinic, at our satellite clinic at One Hundred Oaks, and through a vast array of mobile flu onsites so everyone can find an event that is convenient for them.
To expand access even further, we offer a Peer Vaccination Program (details below.) We also recognize that some people may get vaccinated at their doctor’s office or someplace outside our program. For those instances, individuals can report their vaccine to us using an online self-report, available each year during vaccination season.
Peer Vaccination Program
Our Peer Vaccination Program is another way for Medical Center faculty and staff to receive vaccine conveniently. Here’s how it works:
- Managers registered Peer Vaccinators with OHC at the beginning of vaccination season.
- Managers order flu vaccine from the pharmacy for administration to staff.
- Registered Peer Vaccinators can vaccinate coworkers.
- Peer Vaccinators document vaccination via OHC’s web tool, NOT StarPanel.
- OHC updates the employee’s record in OHC and StarPanel.
- OHC reimburses the department at cost at the end of the flu campaign.
