Get on the Protection Team

  • In the interest of public health, Dr. Phyllis Horns, Vice Chancellor of Health Sciences has declared that all employees and students that work and learn on the Health Sciences Campus will receive a seasonal influenza vaccination this year.
  • Immunization of the work force and student body will create a healthier and more productive environment with fewer absences and less transmission of the influenza virus. Several studies have shown that increasing vaccination rates of heath care workers in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and sites with large elderly populations improves outcomes for these patients. Vaccination of our employees and students will improve the health of our patients.
