Health system TriHealth had a message for 150 employees Wednesday: We really mean it this time.
The 150 workers who didn’t get the required flu shots by the Nov. 16 deadline received termination notices the day before Thanksgiving.
To keep their jobs, they need a flu shot by Dec. 3.
“The flu vaccine still is the best way to protect our employees and our patients against the flu,” spokesman Joe Kelley said.
