All WashU employees must receive the influenza vaccine and upload documentation by Dec. 10.

All WashU employees, including faculty, staff and trainees, are required to receive this year’s influenza vaccination and upload documentation to ReadySet by Dec. 10 (extended from Nov. 19), unless granted an exemption for medical reasons or religious beliefs. Students and contractors have a similar requirement. Exemptions for medical or religious reasons will be accepted through 5 p.m. on Dec. 3. 

Employees who do not submit vaccination documentation or have an approved exemption by 5 p.m. on Dec. 10 will be placed on unpaid suspension as previously stated in the flu vaccination policy.

Get your shot

Appointments are required and can be scheduled online. You may also schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine through WUCare, your primary care provider or a local retail pharmacy.

Clinical workers: Individuals working in a clinical area should schedule their influenza vaccine within their clinical department or division by contacting their clinic administrator.

Remote workers: Those who work in a hybrid or remote position are encouraged to choose an off-campus option.

Documenting your vaccination

If you receive your flu vaccine at an on-campus clinic, your documentation will be uploaded in ReadySet for you. If you receive your flu vaccine off campus, you will need to follow the instructions to upload documentation to ReadySet yourself.
