Influenza Vaccine and Protection


Policy 670.25


Policy Statement


All medical students are encouraged to receive influenza vaccine annually in October or November. The University of Vermont will provide a flu shot clinic at an appropriate time. Students not immunized at the clinic are encouraged to seek flu vaccine from their primary health care clinicians.

All students will be scheduled, prior to clinical assignments, for training and fit-testing with N95 respirators to be used when caring for patients known or thought to be infected with novel influenza viruses (or tuberculosis).
