TriHealth fires 150 employees for not getting flu shots


Nearly a week after 150 employees were reported to have been let go, TriHealth is clarifying a dust-up over mandatory flu shots.
TriHealth fires 150 employees for not getting flu shots

One of Cincinnati’s largest employers fired approximately 150 employees Wednesday for failing to get a required flu shot.

TriHealth spokesman Jeff Stewart said no employees were fired.

He said letters were sent out last week to 150 employees stating that they need to get the flu shot by Dec. 3 — the official start of the flu season.

Officials said that since that notice, 82 employees have either received the shot or provided a valid reason why they couldn’t get the shot.

Stewart said those reasons are either based on religious beliefs or are health related, such as allergies to the flu vaccine.

TriHealth said 59 of the remaining 68 employees are optional, meaning they are agency employees who work with the company on a temporary basis.

Administrators said those workers still need to receive the flu shot or provide a valid reason not to.

Stewart said nine other workers still need to get the shot or provide a reason by Dec. 3.

Officials said any employee who completes the approved paperwork to skip the shot must wear a mask when working around patients.
