Kaleida Health’s Employee Health is now offering flu clinics across the system throughout October and November. See KaleidaScope for the Flu Clinic Schedule (must access link from a Kaleida Health computer/while connected to Kaleida Health network).
All healthcare personnel must either receive or decline the influenza vaccine by November 30, 2019.
Providers vaccinated by a facility or provider other than Kaleida Health will need to bring official proof of vaccination to Kaleida Health’s Employee Health Department in order to receive their sticker of verification.
Those who decline the influenza vaccine must complete a “Declination of Influenza Vaccine” form. Anyone who declines the vaccine due to a medical condition will also need to complete the “DOH Medical Exemption Statement” form. Details for both forms are available on Employee Health’s website on KaleidaScope.
Employee Health, or a site designee, will apply a purple sticker on the right lower corner of the Kaleida Health ID badge of those who decline vaccination. Those with a purple sticker must wear a mask in areas where patients or residents are typically present once influenza is declared prevalent in our area.
Kaleida Health’s Medical Staff Office will be tracking providers’ vaccination status. All providers must submit a copy of their proof of vaccination or declination of vaccination to the Medical Staff Office. Please scan and email documentation to Sarah Cecilia at SCecilia@KaleidaHealth.org.
