High-Dose Vaccine Availability:
Regular Quadrivalent Vaccine Availability:
All staff (including contractors) with a valid NIH identification badge will be provided the seasonal flu vaccine free of charge while supplies last. Please dress appropriately in clothing that will let you quickly expose your upper arm; changing areas will not be available.
In 2008, the Clinical Center Medical Executive Committee mandated that all staff who have patient contact—nurses and doctors but also clerks, housekeepers, and others—must be vaccinated against influenza or complete a declination form. Immunization of health-care workers has been proven to save patient lives, especially in immune-compromised patients.
