  • For Healthcare Personnel

Which healthcare personnel should be vaccinated against influenza?

It is important to vaccinate all healthcare personnel, including paid and unpaid workers who may be exposed to patients or infectious materials. This includes direct patient care staff (e.g., physicians, nurses, and therapists), and staff and volunteers in pharmacy, radiology, laboratory, human resources, facilities management (housekeeping), food services, and laundry. Vaccination should include healthcare staff in all settings, such as hospitals, outpatient clinics, pharmacies, emergency response, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and home care.
