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 best defense against the flu is getting vaccinated. We encourage everyone to be vaccinated to protect themselves, and to reduce the risk that you could spread flu to others, such as patients, coworkers and family members.

Vaccine is available each year from early fall 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, where licensed professionals can administer flu vaccine to their coworkers.

Report your external vaccine! Some people may get vaccinated at their doctor’s office or someplace outside our program. Medical Center staff who are vaccinated outside the OHC program, even if vaccinated by a Vanderbilt provider, should report their vaccine to OHC. To meet the Medical Center’s reporting requirements, employees must either receive the flu vaccine through VOHC, self-report flu vaccine received elsewhere, or complete the exemption form.

Managers: What is your department’s compliance rate? To find out, log in to MyVandy and view the Yearly Medical Center Influenza Program Report.
