Elder Care OSHA Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Important Protection for Healthcare Workers Mobile App
Influenza (flu) is a contagious viral respiratory disease that peaks in the winter months.
How does it work?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), influenza causes approximately 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Influenza is easily spread from person to person through coughing and sneezing, and those infected can be contagious before any signs of the flu are present. Young children, the elderly, and those with chronic health problems are at particular risk for severe complications from the flu. Use the Elder Care OSHA Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Important Protection for Healthcare Workers mobile app to help protect individuals at your elder care facility from seasonal influenza.
