During influenza season, Michigan Medicine will be screening family and visitors for flu-like symptoms. This is being done in order to protect our patients by limiting the spread of the flu. See flyer for more information.
For Michigan Medicine Patients
- Get vaccinated at your Michigan Medicine primary care office - You can now self-schedule for a flu shot at your clinic through MyUofMHealth.org. If you already have an appointment scheduled, ask to be vaccinated while you’re there.
- Get vaccinated at a U-M specialty care office - If you’re already in the care of a U-M specialist, you may be able to receive your flu vaccine at their clinic. Call to inquire!
- Get vaccinated at one of Michigan Visiting Nurses public flu clinics. Walk-in clinics are offered at a variety of locations. Ages 9 and up are welcome. For a list of public flu clinics, click here.
- Keeping our patients safe - Michigan Medicine has joined dozens of health care institutions throughout the country in requiring staff to be vaccinated against flu or to wear a protective mask during any patient interaction during flu season. The requirement is designed to help protect the health of our patients and their families and will especially protect the many people we care for who have serious medical conditions and weakened immune systems.
For Michigan Medicine Employees
Michigan Medicine’s flu prevention policy requires that all employees must either receive a flu vaccination or an approved medical or religious exemption, which will require them to wear a mask for the entire flu season in any clinical building where we provide patient care or where patients may be present. Please visit our employee flu prevention site for more details.
