The flu season is upon us and today marks the launch of UHN's annual four-week Flu Campaign.

It's up to each of us to protect our loved ​​ones, patients and co-workers from the flu by getting the annual flu shot.

Mobile and stationary flu carts will be available across UHN from Oct. 21 – Nov. 20. This year we're using the new computer software program SIMON to make getting the flu shot as easy as possible.

Last year, 7,286 UHN employees rolled up their sleeves to get armed against the flu. I am confident that this year we can meet or exceed our target to vaccinate 8,000 staff, volunteers and students.

Vaccination rates will be posted publicly and on the intranet on a bi-weekly basis, so we can track our progress.

I hope you'll join me in keeping our hallways flu-free. Please consider getting the flu shot.
