Tomorrow’s THE day!

December first is the unofficial day you can start listening to Christmas music, start your holiday shopping and baking, and open a day on your advent calendar; officially, and perhaps not as fun, December first is the start of the flu season.

To protect our most vulnerable patients from a potentially fatal flu infection, as of December first, you should have had a flu shot or be wearing a mask while in patient areas, as the Influenza Prevention Policy comes in effect.

Everyone must self-report online

All staff, physicians, residents etc must report their immunization or mask status online.

If you do not self-report online, your manager will be following up with you until you self-report

Self-report & win! 

Everyone who reports online by December 1, whether you choose to vaccinate or mask, will be entered to win a multitude of prizes including a Fitbit Blaze Smart Watch and $20 coffee cards.

More information

You can get a free flu shot at your family doctor’s office, a pharmacy or walk-in clinic listed on ImmunizeBC’s website. Masks are available through your manager.
If you are having issues in reporting your flu immunization please email fluprevention@vch.ca for assistance. For more information visit the staff flu page on the VCH website.
Patients, clients and members of the public must also have had their flu shot or wear a mask while at any VCH facility effective December 1.
