Healthcare Workers

Participation in the flu vaccination program is mandatory in the state of California.

All Stanford University employees who are healthcare workers and provide direct patient care at SHC or LPCH must comply with Hospital and County policy.  Employees who decline to receive a flu shot must complete the online Health Stream Influenza Refusal Module, which includes the refusal form at the end of the module.

Stanford University physicians with an SHC/LPCH ID badge may receive flu vaccination at any of the campus or hospital flu clinic sites.  If you receive your flu vaccination at a location outside of an SHC/LPCH flu clinic, including at a Stanford University-sponsored flu clinic, you will need to submit proof of vaccination:

Medical staff: Please email with your name, vaccination date, and location of vaccination (ie Kaiser).  No attached proof of vaccination is required.

All other hospital employees/staff:  Please submit proof of vaccination via fax (1-650-618-8661) or by email attachment to

For more information, including further notation of where to email/fax proof of vaccination, please visit the SHC Occupational Health Services Webpage and read this SHC/LPCH medical staff communication.

Masking will be required from November 1, 2015 through March 31, 2016 for any employee or caregiver in Santa Clara County who declines influenza vaccination. 

**Medical Staff members who are not vaccinated or provide proof of exemption will be subject to administrative suspension of privileges and EPIC access  beginning November 3, 2015**
