Group Urges Mandatory Flu Shots for Health Workers
Last week, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a policy statement calling for all health workers to receive annual vaccinations for influenza. The group said hospitals should develop mandatory vaccination programs and enforce compliance with the requirement. The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America also recently published a position paper recommending that all health workers receive flu shots as a condition of their employment.
