ICT News Desk: Mandatory Flu Vaccination

Hospitals can greatly improve their flu vaccination rate among healthcare workers by using a mandatory employee vaccination policy, according to a Henry Ford Health System study. Researchers say the health system achieved employee vaccination rates of 99 percent in the first two years of its mandatory policy, in which annual vaccination compliance is a condition of employment. Nationally, 63 percent of healthcare workers were immunized against the flu in the past two years, according to the CDC.
