A frequent question employers face is whether administering flu shots to employees implicates or violates the HIPAA privacy protection requirements. For example, an employer may hire a healthcare professional to come onsite in order to administer flu shots. The interested employees line up, in a group, to receive the shot. Again, in this circumstance, it is easy to determine who is and who is not getting the shot. So, does this violate HIPPA’s privacy protections? As discussed in more detail below, the answer is no.
