Influenza Prevention Policy

Sentara has adopted a new influenza prevention policy that will require all employees, physicians, volunteers, students and vendors to be immunized against the flu or to wear a mask while at any Sentara facility if they are unable or unwilling to receive the flu vaccine.

This policy is based on evidence that shows healthcare workers can unintentionally expose patients to seasonal influenza if the workers have not been immunized. Evidence also indicates that such exposure can be dangerous to vulnerable patients.

Healthcare organizations have an obligation to prevent the spread of infection to patients in their care. In addition, health care consumers also have the right to assume that health care personnel and the organizations that employ them will take all reasonable measures to reduce and avoid transmission of preventable diseases. This is a best practice in preventing the spread of influenza and an initiative many health systems have adopted. It is another step forward in our safety journey and our efforts to get results that count.
