l hopefully result in a more clear understanding of the utilization of these important vaccines," said Baxter.

"Setting standards for how we measure vaccination rates will help us raise the bar," said Zucker. "Not only will we know how many people are accepting vaccinations, but also how many are refusing them. This way we can improve our strategies for vaccination, set targets for improving rates, and measure our success. In addition, the new health care worker standard is an important first step to increasing vaccination rates in this group, which would reduce the spread of influenza in health care settings."

Measures were developed by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
