This year an influenza vaccine is an important proactive measure to help protect members of the Washington University community and the public at large and to ameliorate the burdens on health care systems anticipated during the coming fall and winter from influenza and COVID-19 illnesses. Given the COVID-19 pandemic and our ongoing need to decrease density to maintain physical distance, the university will be asking employees to choose the vaccine option that best describes their current working situation while maintaining everyone’s safety.

WashU Flu Shot Policy
Any Washington University employee, including faculty, staff and trainees, working onsite for any period of time must receive this year’s influenza vaccination, unless granted an exemption for medical reasons or religious beliefs. Students and contractors have a similar requirement. As a part of this revised influenza policy, those faculty, staff and trainees who are not working onsite are strongly encouraged to get a flu vaccine. Flu vaccination is required should you return to campus during the flu season (through March 31) for ANY reason.
