All employees, staff and students are required to have a seasonal flu vaccination by December 1, 2015. The only exceptions are those who have medical or religious reasons for declining the vaccination. There will not be an opportunity to decline and wear a mask during the flu season this year. Noncompliance is grounds for termination of participation in the HFHS portion of the HFEC education.
Flu Shots are free at Employee Health. Early College students MUST be accompanied by a parent AND bring their HFHS Badge, Monday – Friday, 7am – 5pm.
If you decide to go to outside of HFHS Employe Health, meaning another HFHS Facility, doctor, local drugstore, etc., it is your responsibility to make sure it is in the Early College office NO LATER than, Friday, November 20th, in order for it to be approved by December 1st.
Attached are the declination forms that must be submitted to decline the flu vaccine, one for medical and one for religious. If a staff member or student declines, this form must be submitted by the deadline.
