TriHealth Bridge

All TriHealth team members, clinical and non-clinical, are required to get a flu vaccination by November 1, 2019. It's free, easy and protects our patients. As health care providers, it is our responsibility to do all we can to reduce the chance of spreading this common virus to our patients.

Important dates

  • September 23, 2019: Flu shots begin.
  • November 1, 2019: Last day to obtain a flu vaccination.
  • November 1, 2019: Last day to submit paperwork if you were vaccinated by your TriHealth primary care physician or a non-TriHealth source.
  • November 15, 2019: Separation date for non-compliant staff.
  • December 16, 2019–March 31, 2020: Flu season. (Dates may change based on prevalence of influenza.)

  • Q&A: A compilation of frequently asked questions and answers about TriHealth's approach to flu season.
  • Flu Medical Declination Form: Print, complete, and submit this form to Employee Health for review if you are requesting to DECLINE receiving the flu vaccination this season for a medical reason. Email the completed form to fludocumentation@trihealth.com.

A Few Things to Know

  • Team members who have a medical or other reason for not getting the vaccine this year will need to complete and submit a declination form and wear a mask during flu season when within three to six feet of patients.
  • If you received your flu vaccine at your physician’s office or another vendor, you must submit complete documentation of your flu immunization that includes the date of the vaccination, where you received the vaccine, the manufacturer or brand of the vaccine, the lot number of the vaccine, your name, and your team member ID # to Employee Health by November 1, 2019. Email your documentation to fludocumentation@trihealth.com.
  • Team members can apply for an administrative leave of absence if they do not have an approved, documented medical or other reason for declining the flu vaccine or refuse to wear a mask.
