The Einstein Flu Campaign is now managed through LiveWell Employee Health. We will continue to provide the same quality program with few changes from previous years. We now have a value-added email address to better answer your flu questions - Einsteinfluteam@einstein.edu.
Flu vaccination has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of getting the seasonal flu and is the primary means for preventing seasonal influenza. Having all of Einstein's team members receive a seasonal influenza vaccination remains a critical part of our patient safety program and is consistent with our Code of Conduct. Additional information regarding influenza can be found on the CDC website.
