Q.png

How do you handle healthcare vaccination requirements for employment?

A.png

We pay for the Flu shot and the Hep B shot. We do not carry the Flu vaccine at the surgery center because of numerous regulations regarding monitoring and storing it. We encourage the employee to contact their family physician's office for the Flu shot. The employee can also get their Flu shot from clinics such as Walgreens/CVS pharmacy/Walmart, etc. The employee is expected to bring in proof of vaccination and a receipt, and the center reimburses the employee. Health departments will also have Flu shot days, and we encourage the employees to get their vaccine during this time, as well. We have found that it is less expensive to utilize the employees’ health insurance and wellness benefits than attempt to order the vaccine in and store it.
