To ensure patient safety Summa Health System has implemented a universal influenza vaccine program. All students affiliating at Summa must adhere to the vaccine policy. From December until the end of the influenza season (approx March to May), every student must be influenza vaccinated in order to be in Summa Health System hospitals, clinics, or offices. The privilege of a rotation cannot be granted to non-vaccinated students. It is the responsibility of the school/university sending students to verify that the student has received the current year influenza vaccine.

Mail all of the above to:
Summa Health System
Medical Education Department, Suite G4
525 East Market Street
PO Box 2090
