Health Care Personnel Influenza Immunization

In an effort to reduce the spread of influenza and to protect the health of both patients and health care providers, the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative recommends that all health care providers receive the seasonal influenza immunization.

In December, KHC will release the results of its ninth annual statewide survey of hospital health care workers.  KHC's 2015-16 statewide influenza immunization survey found that influenza immunization among this group continued to rise in Kansas.

KHC also has compiled a comprehensive, online toolkit in support of Hospital Health Care Personnel Influenza Immunization.
