If there was a simple, inexpensive, readily available step once each year that would cut healthcare worker risk for infection, decrease absenteeism, and reduce deaths in their patients, wouldn’t almost all HCW take that step?
- Annual influenza vaccination can provide these advantages and is the standard of care recommended by the CDC, Joint Commission, Montana Department of Public Health and other professional organizations.
- Healthy People 2020 set a target rate of 90% for HCW. 2013/14 CDC data for hospital-based HCW was 81.8%.
- Montana CAHs provide high-quality healthcare in our communities, so let’s put Montana at the leading edge for HCW influenza immunization rates!
