HIGHLIGHT: Resources for Increasing Influenza Vaccination among Healthcare Personnel in Long-term Settings
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) developed a toolkit to help long-term care employers and administrators promote influenza vaccination among their workforce and to help anyone working in LTC facilities understand the importance of influenza vaccination for LTC workers. The toolkit is available now to aid in early flu vaccination planning efforts! This toolkit is also available in Spanish.
Are you gearing up for flu season? This week we are highlighting the Resources for Increasing Influenza Vaccination among Healthcare Personnel in Long-term Settings section of the toolkit. In this section you can find:
- Campaign materials
- Toolkits for Establishing and Improving an Influenza Vaccination Program
- Cultural and Language Resources
- Guidance for Promoting Influenza Vaccination in Your Facility
Be sure to browse this section of the toolkit in preparation for your organization’s flu vaccination plans, and please consider sharing feedback via the toolkit home page!
Within this comprehensive toolkit are a number of resources intended to help long-term care facility, agency, or corporation owners and administrators provide access to influenza vaccination for their workforce and to help any employer of workers in long-term care understand the importance of influenza vaccination for their employees.
