Influenza Non-Employee Vaccine Exemption
Sanford recognizes the importance of creating a safe environment, free of infection/transmission of disease and to protect our patients/residents, employees, licensed independent medical practitioners (MDs, DOs and advanced practice providers (“Providers”)), medical students, volunteers, visitors, and community from exposure to Influenza. Annual Influenza vaccination is required for all employees. Individuals who maintain a sincerely held religious belief requiring abstention from receiving the Influenza vaccination may be exempted from receiving vaccination. Religious exemption must be re- assessed/reapproved each year. Therefore, an updated form must be completed on an annual basis.
