98 Percent of Employees Have Received Flu Shot for Essentia Health

If Employee Doesn't Get Flu Shot by the End of the Day, They Will be Terminated

DULUTH, Minn-Today is the last day that Essentia employees can get the flu shot, otherwise they will be terminated.

A spokesperson for Essentia told Fox 21 that at least 98 percent of employees have got one so far. The requirement includes vendors, volunteers, and students who work at their various sites.

Those exempted are employees who have a certain medical condition or a religious exemption.

Last week, a United Steelworkers motion to try and block Essentia Health’s requirement of getting flu shots, was denied by a federal judge.

The Minnesota Nurses Association has said they will file grievances to win back the jobs of any fired nurses.
