Johns Hopkins University is strongly urging all faculty, staff, and students to get a flu shot for their own well-being, to protect the safety of the wider community, and to comply with a new requirement for in-person activity at JHU. Anyone who is spending time on a Johns Hopkins campus is required to have a flu vaccination or an approved exemption for the 2020–21 academic year by Nov. 20. Affiliates who have not yet gotten their vaccination can catch up by stopping in at the flu shot clinic on the Homewood campus from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 16. The Health, Safety, and Environment website has details plus a link to "make an appointment." Affiliates may choose the Homewood link and select a time. In addition, faculty, students, and staff should download and bring with them a voucher provided by Johns Hopkins on the same website. The voucher will allow Walgreens to automatically tell Johns Hopkins that you have received the vaccine, and no additional action will be necessary.
If you choose any other options, Johns Hopkins will not automatically be informed, so you should get documentation from the provider in order to complete the registration process when the time comes to return to on-campus activity. Details on how to submit proof of vaccination are on the Wellness website for students and on the HR website for employees. Those sites also have details on how to apply for a medical or religious exemption.
Affiliates of the School of Medicine may have different requirements and procedures and should refer to the Johns Hopkins Medicine policy and guidance on the Health, Safety, and Environment website.
