Influenza Tools and Resources

For Healthcare Personnel and Influenza Vaccination Requirements

Influenza vaccination is one of the most effective ways to prevent transmission of the flu. Likewise, influenza vaccination of healthcare personnel plays an important role in reducing healthcare-associated transmission of influenza between patients and staff and vice versa.

For Childcare Facilities:

Flu seasons vary in severity, however, each year an average of 20,000 children younger than age five are hospitalized due to flu complications. Children age five years and under commonly need medical care because of flu, and severe flu complications are most common in children age two years and younger. With this in mind, the prevention of flu is of vital importance to our young children.
Additionally, children under the age of six months cannot receive the flu shot. Thus, the vaccination of children over six months of age that attend the childcare facility, in addition to flu vaccination of childcare providers, helps to ensure that the flu is not passed to the babies in the facility. They rely on the protection from the others around them who have been vaccinated against the flu. The best way to protect children against the flu is to get them vaccinated annually.

Please encourage the parents of the children in your childcare facility to get their child/children vaccinated against the flu. Below are some materials that can help you with this.
