New vaccinations to keep us safe and healthy


Vaccinations protect all of us from contracting and transmitting certain infectious conditions, keeping everyone safe and healthy. Since November 2017, new staff members have been required to be vaccinated for varicella (chickenpox), measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus and hepatitis B—in addition to the flu. By July 31, all staff members will need to provide proof of vaccination for these conditions.

You can satisfy the varicella, MMR, tetanus, hepatitis B vaccination requirement in one of two ways:

  1. Send proof of vaccination directly to our partner in this process, Mercy Employee Health Services (EHS). Either fax your documents or hand deliver them to Mercy EHS directly. Prior to May 1, you will get a one-page cover sheet to help you, your doctor’s office and Mercy EHS with this process.
  2. Get your vaccinations/titers performed at Mercy EHS, free of charge. You must schedule your appointment through the Health Care for the Homeless Human Resources team.
