Recomendaciones para las vacunas obligatorias contra la influenza para el personal de atención médica del Subcomité Asesor de Infecciones de AMDA - Revista de la Asociación Americana de Directores Médicos

Recomendaciones para las vacunas obligatorias contra la influenza para el personal de atención médica del Subcomité Asesor de Infecciones de AMDA - Revista de la Asociación Americana de Directores Médicos: Preventing influenza infections is a national health priority, particularly among
geriatric and adults with frailty who reside in post-acute and long-term care (PALTC)
settings. Older adults account for more than 70% of deaths from influenza, a reflection
of decreased vaccine effectiveness in that age group. Annually vaccinating health
care personnel (HCP) working with these patients against influenza is critical to
reducing influenza morbidity and mortality among patients. PALTC HCP have the lowest
influenza vaccination rate when compared to HCP in other settings.
