Immunizations and Flu Vaccine
When working in a health care environment, it is vital that you are proactive in taking the steps necessary to remain healthy. Our goal: to limit the likelihood of aiding in the spread, or transmission, of illness. Below you will find information and guidelines on our specific immunization programs.
Seasonal Influenza Prevention Program Guidelines
The purpose of these TRHS influenza prevention guidelines is to prevent the spread of influenza among health care workers and their contacts. At Trinity, we are committed to providing a safe work environment for staff, patients and visitors, and seek to continue doing so through our immunization practices.
- All Trinity associates are required to receive the influenza vaccine or complete the requirements for exemption or declination. Non-compliance with the requirements of the Influenza Prevention Program will result in corrective action, up to, and including, termination. Read full guidelines here.
Trinity provides Hepatitis B vaccination protection to all associates working in high risk areas as defined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). All employees working in those areas defined as high risk will be given an opportunity to be vaccinated at no cost to the employee. Read full policy here

TB skin tests will be given to all associates every 4 years, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and our local county health departments. All Trinity staff are expected to comply with this Employee Health requirement. Read full policy here
