Influenza Vaccination Rates Among Health Care Personnel Remain Well Below National Goal
Date:2/27/2008

ase influenza immunization rates among health care personnel.

"This report outlines the complexities of implementing effective workforce immunization programs that serve to protect both health care personnel and the patients they serve," noted Susan J. Rehm, M.D., Medical Director, NFID. "We've found that providers across various health care settings struggle with the same issues when it comes to immunizing staff against influenza-issues like voluntary participation, addressing concerns about safety and efficacy, convenience."
A variety of approaches and activities outlined in these reports, include:

-- Mobile vaccination cart programs

-- Free vaccinations on-site

-- Intensive education and awareness programs

-- Use of new technologies

-- Signed declination forms

-- State legislation and mandate programs

Both reports are available on NFID's Web site at http://www.nfid.org. The Health Care Personnel Call to Action was made possible through an unrestricted educational grant to NFID from sanofi pasteur. The Best Practices report was made possible through funding support to NFID from CSL Biotherapies.
