Flu Shot Requirement for Healthcare Personnels in New York State

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 28, 2013

In trying to protect some of the most vulnerable individuals from the flu, the New York State Department of Health is now requiring all unvaccinated healthcare personnel to wear a facemask while treating their patients. This new flu shot requirement was put into effect on July 31st 2013.

This policy applies to those with a medical exemption as well as religious or personal beliefs.

All effected healthcare organizations are required to maintain and submit detailed reports on vaccination status of their employees, contractors, students, volunteers and anyone else with direct patient contact from their agency. This rule does not apply to visitors or relatives of patients. On November 15th, a report must be submitted to the DOH detailing vaccination status of the different groups. In addition, an itemized report must be made available showing each individual’s vaccination status, where the vaccine was administered, and date. This report will be made available duri
