The Einstein Flu Campaign is managed through LiveWell Employee Health. For any of your Flu questions, please e-mail 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. You can also find more flu vaccination information here.
