MEMORANDUM

To: Cook County Board President Preckwinkle

Cook County Board Commissioners

From: John Jay Shannon, MD

Chief Executive Officer

Cook County Health & Hospitals System

Date: December 4, 2014

Re: CCHHS Policy 08.01.03

Mandatory Influenza Vaccination for Personnel

________________________________________________________________________________

In keeping with our obligation to provide safe care to the patients we serve and protect the health of our employees, the Cook County Health & Hospitals System (CCHHS) adopted Policy No. 08.01.03, Mandatory Influenza Vaccination for Personnel.

The policy requires all employees, students, volunteers and contractors to be in compliance on or before December 1st of each year. Compliance is defined as meeting one of the three following criteria:

  1. Receiving the influenza vaccine.
  2. Submitting verifiable documentation of a medical exemption.
  3. Submitting verifiable documentation of a religious exemption.

Employees who submitted documentation of an exemption will be required to comply with preventive infection control measures established by the Health System to reduce the risk of transmitting influenza.

Employees have been informed that failure to comply with the policy is considered a major cause infraction under the CCHHS Personnel Rules and will result in discipline, up to and including termination of employment for cause, beginning as early as December 2, 2014.

Please be advised, as of December 3, 2014 we estimate 742 CCHHS employees remain out of compliance with the mandatory policy. Over the course of the coming days CCHHS will initiate disciplinary action up to and including termination
