Stop the flu now!

There are over 3,000 Monash Health employees who still haven’t taken action against influenza.

If this is you, then you need to get your free vaccination now.

If you haven’t had the vaccine at Monash Health or are not participating in receiving the flu vaccine you must complete the quick online declaration form.

Flu season is here with 19,000 confirmed cases of influenza notified to the Victorian Health Department, so do not wait to act. Although 79% of Monash Health employees are vaccinated, there is still more we need to do.

It’s important you do your part to protect yourself, your patients, your colleagues, and your family. Also take every possible step to stop the spread of flu this winter:

1. Cough and sneeze into your elbow
2. Wash your hands regularly
3. If you’re sick, stay home!

Vaccinations are available at Dandenong, Casey, Cranbourne, Kingston, Monash Medical Centre, Moorabbin, Pakenham, and Thomas Street. The schedule is available on the intranet.

Please join us and protect the people you care for.

Regards,

Martin Keogh
Chief Operating Officer | Monash Health
