VACCINATIONS AT CHILDREN’S NATIONAL MEDICAL CENTER
Greetings SEIU Members at Children’s National Medical Center. As you
know CNMC has made the “Flu Shot” mandatory this year. We are very aware
that you have not received your personal copy of the Collective
Bargaining Agreement. It will be available to you very soon. However it
is available for you to view by
We would like to share with you the article that covers vaccinations.
Article 13.11(a) (iii) Health and Safety reads as follows:
The Hospital shall have the right to require all employees to
undergo vaccinations which in the Hospital’s reasonable judgment are
necessary for the provision of safe patient care or are required by
applicable law or regulation; provided that the Hospital will only
require employees to receive influenza vaccinations if they are
recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The
Hospital will provide thirty (30) days’ advance notice to the Union of
its intent to require vaccinations. An absence that is directly related
to a reaction from receiving a mandatory vaccination will not be
recorded as leave abuse for purposes of corrective action if the
employee provides medical documentation verifying that the absence was
directly related to such a reaction.
The Center for Disease and Prevention (CDC) 2013-2014 Summary of
“routine annual influenza vaccination of all persons aged 6 months
and older continues to be recommended.” You can visit the following
website to verify the CDC’s recommendations.
As always workers can decline the vaccination for religious or medical
reasons. If you work on a campus that provides clinical care, and you
decline the vaccination, you can be required to wear a mask during the
declared flu season. For any further questions contact the union office
at (202) 483-6221.
