The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is mandating influenza vaccination for all of its employees, similar to other required vaccinations such as MMR. Each request for exemption, regardless of the reason, is evaluated individually by Student Employee Health Services, and if needed, the Office of Human Resources.
The documentation form must be signed by your primary care physician if you are requesting a medical exemption.
Individuals with medical exemptions previously filed with Student Employee Health Services will be notified prior to September 16 of their exemption status for the 2020-2021 flu season.
Religious exemption forms are required to be re-submitted annually and reviewed by the Office of Human Resources.
Masks for Approved Exemptions
Departments and colleges may order masks for those who have an approved exemption from Medline. The supply number for a box of 50 masks is NON27122Z – Mask, Face: Isolation Mask with ear loops.
